BENEFITING: RAINBOW COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CENTER
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
Our Goal: To provide food baskets with holiday trimmings for 600 local families; gifts, toys and gift cards for 800 local children. We also want to provide coats, hats, scarves, and gloves to 1,200 low income individuals in our local area. When we give gift cards, we are giving the gift of "choice". Bring in the holiday spirit by helping a family choose their own winter outerwear.
$25 provides a complete holiday meal to each family.
$50 provides cold weather outerwear or a gift card for the family to purchase outerwear of their choice for a child
$100 provides a complete holiday meal to a family, plus cold weather outerwear to two children
The holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) are the most wonderful time of the year for many. However, there is also large amount of people that go forgotten and do not experience this same joy during this season. These people are throughout our communities and struggle with having the minimal resources necessary to provide what many take for granted.
While many have so much food they are eating leftovers into the new year, some have to choose between feeding themselves or feeding their children. While many can provide their children with multiple gifts, some will have to explain to their children why they will not be receiving anything for Christmas again this year.
We want to fight to bring this disparity to an end and provide the possibility of hope this holiday season to as many families in our area as possible. Help us bring Hope for the Holidays to families in the Silver Spring, MD area...every little bit can make a big difference! Peace & Blessings!
