Holiday Share Food Drive Has Begun: Making a Difference for Families in Need
As the holiday seasons approach, the community comes together in extraordinary ways here at the Center, to make a difference for neighbors in need.
The Center’s Holiday Food Drive, now underway, seeks to gather enough food items for the Center to share with families of limited means in November and December. Last year alone, because of the generosity of the community, we were able to help 700 families, supplying them with the ingredients to prepare special holiday meals at home.
Said one grateful mother: “It is very emotional for me, because these are items that I couldn’t afford, and having these foods make the holiday special.”
Click here for our full list of holiday foods we need. And thank you for helping the Center be a place families can turn to when they need help.
