Promote the Foodbank to Everyone YOU Know

This is probably the EASIEST thing you can do to help us and folks are always more willing to help if a friend (or someone they know) asks versus one of our staff members…

  • CLICK HERE to create your own fundraising page – for every dollar raised, we can provide 8 healthy meals to those in need!
