Gleaners fundraiser at Cafe Felix Dec 14–come on out!
Amazing friends of mine are putting on a fundraiser for Gleaners
Wont YOU come! its 1/2 off martin night! ~d
Please join me December 14th, from 6-9 PM at Cafe Felix for a gathering
in support of Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan.
There is unprecedented demand (http://www.freep.com/article/200911220300/NEWS06/911220433) for food support across the entire Metro Detroit are…a. We ask you to help by bringing a monetary donation to our benefit gathering.
Cash is best- as it allows Gleaners to leverage more food and feed more people than
with canned donations. As added incentive, an anonymous donor will match up to the first $1500.
We suggest a $10 donation, although please feel comfortable giving at the
level that makes sense within your own budget. You can use Visa/MC
or bring a check made out to: “Gleaners Community Food Bank of
Southeastern Michigan” with your name, address and phone number. We’ll
have forms available to ensure you get a tax deduction and Gleaners
will send you a receipt.
In addition, please bring socks or gloves (really).
Our friend Danielle Kaltz has made it her mission to feed and
clothe homeless in Detroit. She is hoping you can help with a donation
of men’s socks, which she can distribute to people living on the
street. These are critical to keeping people warm this winter as they
can be used on both feet and hands.
Please bring family and friends to share a coffee or martini
(half-off!). The more the merrier, and the greater the impact! More
than just a charity event, we also see this gathering as a way to build
community and get to know new and interesting people.
