A Conversation about Holiday Helpings with Lauren Taylor

Our community members are in deep need due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many low-income families are struggling with employment, food security, and mental health. The holiday season is here, but celebrating with family and friends may not be a priority to everyone. Holiday Helpings this year is about turning tradition into progress, we’re providing the necessary tools for people to make their own decisions. This year Lauren Taylor, Representative Payee Benefits Coordinator, created a classy page to help raise funds for Holiday Helpings. We got the chance to speak with Lauren about her participation this year.

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.
