The holidays are a magical time for most, but for some, they can be a hard and lonely time. As one of the top Cary catering companies, we hope that if you can this year, you decide to donate your money, time or unused canned goods and non-perishable food items to one of North Carolina’s many deserving nonprofit organizations. All across North Carolina, there will be families this holiday season that will not be able to even provide a hot meal for their loved ones. With your help, we can help change all of this.
We found a really comprehensive list of all the food donation pantries located around Raleigh that can really use your help this year: Food Pantry Donations. There are also some great organizations that help families in the Capital City, such as the Raleigh Rescue Organization, The Helping Hand Mission, The Food Bank Of North Carolina, and if you live outside of the Raleigh, Durham, Triangle area, here is an entire list of food pantries that will gladly accept your donations for the entire state of North Carolina: Food Donation Directory.
Cary Catering Companies Helping The Less Fortunate
Donations of canned food, time and money are all appreciated at any of the fine locations listed above. Even if you cannot volunteer your time to help one of the organizations, there are still lots of other ways you can help out. You can organize a food drive, or several food drives. Have one at your office by setting up a few boxes in the break room, front office, or other gathering areas with a simple sign explaining the idea of collecting food for donations. Have a community food drive and encourage all of your neighbors to pitch in. Post a message on your community’s bulletin board, or contact your homeowner’s association and ask them for assistance. Maybe they can send out an email on your behalf with all the details of the event. If you have children, help them plan a food drive at school. You could talk to their teachers and principal for ideas on the best way to implement it so that all the students can be involved. The best items are canned vegetables, fruits and meats, peanut butter, pastas, baking ingredients and condiments such as ketchup and mustard.
This holiday season, we hope you find a way to give back to your community and help the less fortunate. We hope other Cary catering companies take notice of this post and follow our lead. We love giving back and helping others.
