The City of Santa Rosa is teaming up with the Redwood Empire Food Bank (REFB) to host a virtual donation event and drive-thru food drive in response to growing hunger needs amid the COVID-19 emergency. The City seeks to raise $25,000 for the Redwood Empire Food Bank during a Neighbors Helping Neighbors Virtual Food Drive.
Redwood Empire Food Bank is projecting the number of people in need of fresh food, groceries, and meals in Sonoma County to double amid the public health emergency to include 164,000 children, seniors, and adults.
It is going to take all of us, working together to get through this.
Virtual Food Drive Donation
The City of Santa Rosa seeks to raise $25,000 during the Neighbors Helping Neighbors VirtualFood Drive with Redwood Empire Food Bank.
An online monetary donation is the easiest and most effective way to make a difference, especially during this time when social distancing is crucial. All forms of giving are appreciated, but money allows the food bank to put resources toward our most urgent needs in the moment. All donations, big or small, will help nourish our neighbors facing hunger.
Make your dollar go further - For every $1 donated, REFB will distribute $4 of healthy food.
REFB seeks to raise $100,000 countywide to meet the increased need of our communities during the pandemic. As the largest city in Sonoma County, Santa Rosa’s need is also the largest and the City ‘s $25,000 fundraising goal aims to help better meet that need
