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.
As 2019’s Holiday Helpings is in full swing, our new Board President weighs in on what the holidays mean to him, why he donates to Holiday Helpings, and why you should get involved, too.
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!
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.”
