Holiday Food Basket

As we gear up for the holiday season, take part in the City’s Thankful Neighbor and Neighborly Elf Holiday Food Basket Programs. Please consider donating your time, non-perishable food items, canned goods, new toys, or making a monetary contribution.  

The program allows sponsorship of pre-selected families, identified by the Department of Community Services Family and Human Services Division staff.
