It’s that time of year— the holiday season at Care and Share. We have many ways you can get involved- hosting a food drive, donating a turkey, helping us stuff a bus!
Do you work at an organization or business and want to host a food drive this holiday season? If so, CAREDRIVEis for you. It’s simple- collect food, raise money and bring your items to the food bank at the end of your drive. Tight on space, or have an at-home business? No worries. Care and Share offers a virtual food drive option – a place where you can raise money online through an interactive website – that is both engaging and fun for the participant!
