As many of us are feeling the strain of increased prices, these stressors are compounded for families who experience food insecurity. This holiday season, U of M Geriatric Community Programs is raising funds and hosting a food and fund drive to help feed our community's families, children, individuals, and seniors. All donations benefit Food Gatherers, the food bank and food rescue program serving Washtenaw County for more than 30 years. We will be collecting items at the Turner Senior Resource Center from December 6, 2022 - January 6, 2023. Your donation of non-perishable food items is greatly appreciated!
Please also consider making a monetary donation and let Food Gatherers do the shopping for you. With their bulk purchasing power, they can really make your dollar stretch. ($1 = 3 meals!) Please scan the QR code below to give today.
As far as collecting donations, anyone who gives online will receive an email tax receipt. If you give cash or checks in-person at Turner Senior Resource Center, the donors who give by check will receive a mailed tax receipt letter when the checks are turned into Food Gatherers. They can also mail a tax receipt for gifts of cash, but please provide your gift amount along with your name and address when we collect the cash.
