Connecticut Community Foundation has partnered with Kimbia, Inc. to set up an online giving platform for this 36-hour event at www.givelocalccf.org. Anyone can donate on this secure website to a participating nonprofit at any time between 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 3rd and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4th. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum! Every dollar donated to participating nonprofits will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and Give Local sponsors – making donor dollars stretch farther!
Now in our 42nd year, the non-profit Cheshire Food Drive continues to be the sole financial support of the town’s emergency Food Voucher Program, which distributes more than 700 food vouchers yearly. Vouchers are valued at $40, $60 for families of four or more, and are redeemable at the Stop and Shop or Big Y stores in Cheshire. Please help us to provide unrestricted food assistance to families in need of short-term help. We also sponsor food collections at schools and local businesses, culminating in our November town-wide drive on the First Congregational Church Green that benefits area pantries.
