Holiday Giving with a Special Twist
The holidays will soon be upon us. Often our family gatherings and celebrations center around food. Now, imagine what your festivities would look like if you had little or no food to eat or share. This is the reality many of our neighbors here in WNC face.
This year as you prepare for the season of giving thanks, we hope you will consider one of these alternative giving options. These are guaranteed to brighten your holidays and bless another’s:
- Give the gift that keeps on giving to that special someone who is difficult to buy for. Make a donation in their honor and we’ll send a special holiday card letting them know of your gift.
- Ask your guests to bring cans of food to your holiday party instead of a hostess gift. Bring them to MANNA and we’ll let you know how many meals you are providing for others.
- Take your children shopping and let them pick out food for a needy family, then bring it to MANNA, and we’ll be sure it gets people who really need it.
- Instead of having a group gift exchange, share a covered dish meal and pool your funds to make a larger donation to your selected charity.
Please share your ideas with us.
