Holiday Giving Network

MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

PROVIDE THANKSGIVING OR CHRISTMAS FOOD TO A FAMILY IN KENT COUNTY

We will match you with a family in your area that is in need of holiday dinner food items. You can purchase the food items and then deliver them directly to the family.

 

DONATE MONEY OR GIFTS

Give grocery store gift cards or monetary donations to help us ensure that every family is provided for this holiday season.

 

 

HOST A DRIVE

Hold a holiday food drive with your congregation, office, small group, or family and donate the items to a local pantry (we can connect you with your local food pantry).
