So, we need your help this Holiday Season. In the last year we have helped over 2,000 families with emergency food, and we hope to help even more over the next 12 months.
Can you Share A Slice of Holiday Spirit with those in need this holiday season?
You can either share by volunteering to host a Food Drive or Donation Collection at your church, workplace, school or other organization.
You can share by volunteering to host (and staff with 4 other friends) a pre-scheduled grocery store bag-a-thon at a local grocery store.
