Holiday memories are made around the dinner table. This year, as families gather after a long time apart, holiday traditions will feel even more special. Baking holiday treats, tasting your favorite dish – but most importantly, reconnecting with friends and family over a special holiday meal. Food brings us together; food helps make lasting memories.
However, for families facing hunger in our region, holiday meals might not feel as special. But you can help. We want all families to enjoy time together during the holidays and to gather over a very special meal. By supporting our annual Holiday Campaign, you can help families find joy this holiday season.
Please consider making a personal donation or a corporate gift. $1 = 4 meals
A few dollars from each pay can make a lasting impact.
Contact Debra Hagarty at 330.535.6900 to learn ways you can support the Foodbank through deferred and planned gifts.
