December Giving Initiative

As December, and the especially the Christmas season rolls around, many helpful organizations are in extra need of supplies. This year, we are organizing a Giving Initiative. The local Food Banks and the Gathering Place have indicated a significant need for supplies in order to keep up with the tremendous growth in service utilization in the past few months.

From December 1st until December 15th, we will be collecting donations to go toward either (or both!) the Community Food Sharing Association and the Gathering Place. Please consider helping us with our Giving Initiative.


Community Food Sharing Association: Any non-perishable food items or monetary donations

The Gathering Place: Any new personal care items (i.e. hygiene items, hats/mitts/scarves, etc) or monetary donations

* Your item donations can be placed in the Christmas boxes found by the Christmas tree.

*Any monetary donations can be inserted into one of the membership draw envelopes and placed in the membership draw slot at the Starter’s desk. Simply write “The Giving Initiative” on your envelope. If you have a preference for the location of your donation, you can indicate that as well – otherwise, we will split the donation to the two organizations.

Thanks so much for helping us with our Giving Initiative!
