BENEFITING: IMPERIAL VALLEY FOOD PANTRY
Children love receiving gifts at Christmastime -- they hope for dolls, stuffed animals, and toy trucks galore. For some children in the Imperial Valley, all they want for Christmas is a full stomach. You can help make their wish a reality with your gift to Imperial Valley Food Bank's Christmas Every Friday fundraiser. Each donation you make benefits IVFB's Weekend Backpack Program, which helps kids without enough food at home keep a full stomach over the weekend, when they do not have acces to school lunches. Backpacks full of fresh fruit, milk, and other commodities are distributed to our most vulnerable children in 40 schools across the county. Our goal of $18,000 will ensure 100 kids have access to the nutritious food they need in order to achieve their full potential in school and in life.
