"Food baskets for low income families" is a team work effort that for many years we have been doing to benefit families in need in our community. These baskets contain everything that is necessary to prepare a family dinner on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.
A group of hard worker volunteers has brought a lot of happy moments to poor families in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia since 1982. For the last 3 years we have been working with Brendaliz Cintrón on this successful initiative, however, and thanks to the growth of volunteers as well as donors and needy families, starting in 2017 The Foundation plans to deliver dozens of food baskets the day before Thanksgiving, seeking to reach families who really need it and give them time to adequately prepare the special dinner.
We invite those interested in supporting this work, to do that through sponsorship, donating food or joining as volunteer drivers on the day we distribute the baskets. There is no doubt that together we can make a difference.
There are several ways to help:
1. Preparing and decorating one or the food baskets you wish to donate. Each basket should include all the necessary items for a family dinner, including: rice, oil, tortilla dough, salt, sugar, pasta, canned beans, crackers, vegetables, fruits, turkey or chicken, whichever you deem appropriate.
2. Donating $ 30.00 dollars through our page, via pay pal or making a deposit to the Fundacion’s bank account, and we will prepare, decorate, and deliver the food basket (s) for you.
3. Donating your time as a volunteer driver to deliver the prepared basket for those families that will be carefully selected.
