This holiday season, Coastal Roots Farm is raising $25,000 to feed 500 local families fresh, organic produce for an entire month. Your gift provides farm-fresh produce to those who need it most.
5: Make December a Little Warmer
Even in San Diego, the winter season brings with it a noticeable chill and extended darkness (the shortest day of the year was the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2018). Brighten the month up by getting vibrant, colorful, organic produce in to the hands of people who need it most.
4: It’s the Reason for the Season
Whether you connect to religious teachings about charity or just feel the gratitude of a few extra days off to spend with your loved ones, spread it around. Let your spirit of generosity extend beyond the joy of gift exchanges with friends and family. This year, give a little more and nourish your neighbor.
3: Don’t Wait for a New Year to be a New You
Each year we make resolutions to become better versions of ourselves. Get a head start on 2019 by getting involved with causes that mean the most to you. If you give to the Farm’s “Feed 500 Families this Holiday Season” Campaign before December 31, 2018, your gift will be doubled! Make a bigger impact by donating today.
2: The Warm Fuzzies are Real
Research shows that people who give live happier and healthier lives. (Read all about it). Reap the physical and emotional benefits of your giving. Who doesn’t like a win/win?
1: Your Gift Makes an Impact on Real People
1 in 6 San Diegans—over half a million—are food insecure. The number is even higher among children: 1 in 5 local kids don’t have enough food for an active, healthy life. For too many families, their income doesn’t meet the high cost of living. Fresh food is a luxury they can’t afford, so instead they subsist on cheap, unhealthy food. Your gift of any amount will help change this story.
