DONATE GIFTS FOR THE GOOD NEWS PARTNERS CHRISTMAS MARKET

Residents of our SRO and affordable rental units are invited to “shop” in our annual Christmas Market for items they need.On December 11th we open the market to residents, pricing all the gifts under $10.  We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to purchase quality gifts at a price they can afford.   You can help by purchasing items off their wish list.

BE A HOLIDAY HERO

Cancer patients and their families have a lot on their plate, especially during the holidays —  but it’s not always food. This holiday season, through Culinary Care, you can fill their plates with hope, joy and critical nourishment when you give them access to one free meal — or a full year of meals.
