Thanks for an amazing Holiday Helpings season!
January 20, 2016 by BFC in Holiday Helpings In the Community
With our Holiday Helpings campaign now closed, we can’t tell you how proud we are of our staff, volunteers, donors, and community partners. Together, we provided 10,021 free holiday meals–we’re talking turkeys, stuffing, cranberry sauce, AND sweet potatoes straight from City Orchard–for our clients to enjoy at home. How awesome is that?!
During Holiday Helpings 2015, 387 volunteers worked alongside staff to serve our clients with dignity and respect, and we raised more than $400,000 for our Food Program. WOW!
It takes a village to make this work possible, and we’re particularly grateful for the 100+ corporate and community partners who rallied together to sponsor Holiday Helpings and coordinate company-wide drives.
From companies large and small, to nonprofit and elementary school groups, to neighbors and BFC staff members, our supporters came out in force to spread the word about Bread for the City’s good work. A special “thanks” goes out to our top Holiday Helpings fundraisers: WilmerHale LLP, Perkins Coie LLP, Alston & Bird LLP, Jones Day, Dickstein Shapiro LLP, Wiley Rein LLP, and Bates White.
Tough times do not rid our clients of the desire to share in the joys of the holiday season. Thank you for helping us ensure that these traditions are available to all!
