'Tis the Season of Giving

By Dylan Menguy December 22, 2014

The holidays are a time when the Capital Area Food Bank experiences much generosity. Each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the food bank receives an outpouring of donations from the community, which allows us to keep our doors open to feed those who are struggling with hunger in our region. 

Individuals and organizations make year-end contributions to ensure that we at the food bank can keep feeding our neighbors in need, at the holidays and throughout the New Year. Organizations like Applied Protective Technologies, the National Education Association and Evolution Finance (the DC based parent company of the leading credit card comparison website CardHub and the personal finance social network WalletHub).  In particular, Evolution Finance made a gift to help fund the food bank’s childhood feeding programs. Their gift alone will provide over 6,000 holiday meals to children in the region who are struggling to get enough food to eat.  We extend our deepest gratitude to all of these organizations, and to the many individual donors who generously gave money throughout 2014 to help feed our neighbors in need.

If you or your company wishes to make a donation to the CAFB, it’s really simple. Just go to our donation page and fill out the form. Making someone’s holiday brighter is simple when you give to the Capital Area Food Bank. Donate so that we can provide food to the nearly 700,000 people in our region who are struggling to put food on their holiday tables.  Together we can solve hunger.
