While we celebrate the holiday season with our family and friends, enjoying tasty cuisines, decorating homes and gardens and spending huge amount on shopping, there are quite a few families around us, who struggle to survive. They do not celebrate the holiday season. In fact there is nothing new for them about the season.
To help the communities around us during the holiday season Non Profit Organization Samaritan House and Second Harvest Food bank has announced a Holiday Food and Toy Drive. GROM Audio is proud to be inviting the employees to donate non-perishable items.
While food is necessary for survival and living a healthy and happy life, the importance of toys from kid’s life cannot be ignored. However, the truth remains that many kids in Santa Clara and San Mateo Countries do not get the privilege to play with toys simply because their parents cannot afford them.
Let’s join together and donate toys, new or old to bring a smile on a child’s face. Samaritan House Kicked off the first of their four thanksgiving food distribution and aims to feed 600 families. They are celebrating December 2 as giving Tuesday and would be giving toys, gift cards, cash, non perishable gift items and new kids clothing. See details on their Facebook!
In order to feed the low income families and help them celebrate the holiday season by forgetting all their worries, Second Harvest food bank has set the good to provide 13000 turkeys. Till the time this blog went into publishing the number of turkeys donated was closing in on the 10000 mark.
Those who want to donate money can also do so by visiting the website of SecondHarvest Food Bank. For every dollar one donates, 95 cents are sent to programs for feeding the low income families in need. If you are not financially strong, you can always be a volunteer and help in the process and coordination. Second Harvest Food Bank is looking for volunteers.
We would like to invite you to take a part in helping communities around us during this holiday season.
