Giving the Gift of Hope

Various ways to Make a Difference

By Rachel Braver, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano

Real people need real help during the holidays. Last year, Liz was struggling to make ends meet for her family after a difficult divorce drained her savings and an injury prevented her from working. Despair turned to hope when she learned of a holiday food basket distribution at a partner agency of the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. Liz and her children were grateful for all the food they received, including a turkey, canned veggies, and baking items. 

We need your help to meet our 3 million dollar goal to help more neighbors like Liz. Your support allows us to continue to provide food for daily needs as well as make special holiday meals a reality for an additional 30,000 households.

Here are some ways you can make a difference:

1.     DONATE at foodbankccs.org/holidays and then share with your friends and family on social media and email. With every $1 donated, we can provide two nutritious meals.

2.     HOLD A FOOD DRIVE. Make a food drive part of your holiday celebrations at work, school, or your place of worship by requesting food collection boxes or a barrel. Learn more at foodbankccs.org/fooddrive.

3.     HOST A “BUY A BAG” FUNDRAISER. Get colorful grocery bag cutouts from the food bank and set a dollar amount for each one. After making a donation, donors write their name on a bag to be displayed on a wall, window, counter, or even a tree! Learn more at foodbankccs.org/buyabag.

When you give to the food bank, know that it’s not only nourishment you provide this holiday season – you give the gift of HOPE.
