24 hours of Local Giving

By Food Bank Grants Coordinator, Neil Zarchin: May 6, 2014 is the Give Local America. Combining the resources of a national campaign with the heartfelt rewards of local charity, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano has joined forces with three local Community Foundations to celebrate the Give Local America – known here as We Give.

Donors all across the country will be asked to support non-profits in their own communities in a celebration of generosity. Friends of the Food Bank can access our page through the Richmond Community Foundation at www.wegivecontracosta.org, the East Bay Community Foundation at www.eastbaygives.org.

Nonprofits representing all the best of what makes Contra Costa and Solano counties such great places to live will be represented on these websites. Naturally, we hope that you will choose the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.

This will be the second celebration of the Give Local America. With the advent of internet commerce and social media, this could very well be the future of philanthropy. So get on board at the beginning and plan to visit one of the sites above and be a part of We Give.

Together we can solve hunger.
