How to be a Regular Donor
We can set up a regular giving gift through our banks. This is just like a regular transfer of funds from your account to ours. This way we can better budget through our lean times and do better food planning.
Host a Food Drive
It is easy to do. Contact our office, let us know the time and date of your drive, your intended target area and population. Promote the event through notices, media or posters.
