We invite you to participate in our annual Holiday Campaign to help provide food for our neighbors, friends and children’s classmates struggling with hunger. This holiday season, you can help give a heart-warming meal and offer hope to those who need it most. Help us provide more than 7 million meals this holiday season.
Host a Food & Funds Drive
Organize a food and funds drive with your family business, school, church or community organization. Collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations. Every $1 donated can provide 4 meals! Coordinator's Kits will be mailed to you beginning Nov. 1 and include materials you need to make your drive a success! Register your drive below and thank you for your support!
Start an Online Fundraiser
Consider creating an online fundraising page for the 2018 Holiday Campaign. It's simple to set-up, you can personalize your page, and it easily allows you to send the link to your friends and family via social media. Collecting monetary donations for the Foodbank this holiday season is a powerful way to support your Foodbank and those struggling with hunger. $1 = 4 meals!
We need your support to feed people struggling with hunger right here in our community. Hunger affects children, seniors, the disabled and even working adults. In our community, as many as 263,200 people rely on the Foodbank for emergency food assistance each year. Many have to face tough decisions like whether to pay their heating bills or buy groceries. They turn to the Foodbank and its agencies in their time of need. Please consider donating to this year's Holiday Campaign.
