Holiday Helpings is Almost Here!
October 21, 2015 by BFC in BFC Updates Holiday Helpings
It’s Holiday Helpings season here at Bread for the City, and there’s excitement in the air!
Beginning November 2nd, we will distribute free holiday meals–a turkey, rice, cranberry sauce, vegetables, stuffing and more!–to our clients through our NW and SE Center food pantries. Why? Because Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a turkey!
At Bread for the City, we believe that everyone, regardless of their income or background, deserves to enjoy all the joys of the holiday season. That’s why we’ll distribute over 9,500 free turkey dinners before the end of the year.
You’re probably wondering…how on earth do we make this happen? Good question!
During Holiday Helpings, we put the FUN in fundraising! We call on our friends and neighbors to host their own Holiday Helpings fundraising drives to help sponsor our Holiday Helpings dinners. Last year, nearly 100 groups and individuals throughout DC rallied together to support Bread for the City by organizing their own fundraising drives! These fundraisers raised over $300,000 to ensure that BFC could distribute healthy holiday to families facing hunger across DC.
Now it’s time to do it all again!
Organizing a Holiday Helpings fundraising drive in your office, place of worship, or within your social network is a super special way to rally people together to give back this holiday season. It costs Bread for the City $29 to provide one holiday meal, so it’s easy to make a big impact with your fundraiser. Will you commit to raising $290 so that 10 families can enjoy a holiday meal this year? Visit www.breadforthecity.org/holidaydrives to get started!
