Rick Doane, Executive Director of Interfaith Social Services, Quincy, Mass., is proud to announce that the organization raised more than $60,000 at its 14thAnnual Interfaith Social Services Feed the Hungry Gala… helping to put food on the table for hungry families.
Every year during this season our nation is gripped by gift giving fever. We all love gifts and it is fun to give them and receive them. At Interfaith Social Services this time of year is extra special. We are busy distributing gifts to thousands of South Shore residents. However, most of the gifts that our clients receive are the basic necessities that many of us take for granted: food, counseling, Christmas presents for disadvantaged children and assistance paying for basic utilities that are about to be turned off.
The next few months are going to be an especially difficult time for people in our community, and we need your help to provide much needed support to our neighbors in need. Unemployment, a sluggish economy, and the high cost of heating oil have all combined to create a crisis like environment for low income residents of the South Shore. Interfaith Social Services
steps in where we can to help people make it through these difficult times, but we can”t do it alone. We are inviting you to partner with us to help these families.
You are not alone in this partnership. The Tomfohrde Foundation has kindly agreed to match all donations that we receive above $5,000. In other words, if we receive
$10,000 in donations before the end of the year then the foundation will
give us an additional $5,000.
This year give the gift of a basic necessity to one of your neighbors in need: click here to donate today.
