One of our favorite holiday traditions here at Voluntaryism in Action—our annual fundraiser for holiday meals—was a huge success this year. Our donors helped us almost double what we raised last year, and we collected almost $9k.
With these funds, the VIA team purchased essential items for food banks across the country, including St Jude Food Pantry and St Moses the Black in Detroit, Michigan and the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano in California (the only food bank operating in the entire Bay Area due to government restrictions). Our team personally delivered over 1,500lbs of food! On the individual level, through our website and personal referrals, we assisted 30 families with groceries in time for Thanksgiving.
Watch for our holiday meal assistance forms to re-open soon in time to help with meals for Christmas, Chanukah, and other festive December meals!
