Holiday Helpings: Beyond the Celebration

What does Holiday Helpings mean to our clients? At Bread for the City, it is the opportunity to reduce the burden of poverty for our neighbors and help families maintain traditions, celebrations, and stability. For our clients, it can be a channel to critical resources.

The Gift of Holiday Helpings

The 2018 Holiday Helpings campaign may have concluded, but we are still blown away by our community’s incredible fundraising energy and generosity that made this year our most successful Holiday Helpings campaign yet!

BFC CEO George Jones and Alston & Bird Senior Counsel Earl Pomeroy (as a Thanksgiving turkey)!

Emmy Torruellas raised $10,000 with a run!

Goodwin & Proctor's potluck competition raised funds through votes for delicious dishes!

Donate $32 to BFC through Jessica Del Vecchio Photography and Zoeica Image's drive page, and they'll send you a 5x5 print from Shenandoah National Park.

Chairman’s Corner: The Value of $32

Our chairman, Paul Taskier on why Holiday Helpings is a special time of year: “While it is holy work to provide food to those who do not have it, it is all that much more special and meaningful to allow others to experience the holiday as we all do, to allow them to forget the daily burdens and celebrate their family togetherness.”
