Summer is almost here. But for many Food Bank families, it is an unwelcome break. Summer means the 1 in 3 students who rely on free and reduced-price school meals will suddenly struggle to eat. Give today and your donation will be matched $1 for $1, up to $100,000.
We will have envelopes for donations as well as a barrel for food donations at our Bridge Center on a permanent basis.
The Longest Day is a sunrise-to-sunset event to raise funds to fuel the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. It will be held nation-wide on June 21, 2013, the longest day of the year. Its one day to honor the passion, dedication and strength displayed by people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers every day.
We will hold extra games that day. Players will receive 70% sectional rated black points at all games and all sanction fees paid to the ACBL will be donated to the Alzheimers Association. Our Unit is also raising funds for the Alzheimer's Association.
