Giving Tuesday Berks – Tuesday, December 1

The Greater Berks Food Bank is taking part in the 2nd annual Giving Tuesday Berks – as organized by the Berks County Community Foundation. After Black Friday and Cyber Monday are done, Giving Tuesday (a national movement) is an opportunity to put the focus back on the good work of charitable organizations during this season of sharing. How can you participate in Giving Tuesday? You can make an online donation on December 1 on our website.  Or, you can also “pop-in” to the GBFB that day to drop-off a non-perishable food donation in our front lobby. More info about the GBFB will be available as will quick tours for those interested!

Give a holiday gift that gives twice!

This holiday season, give friends, family, or co-workers a gift that shows you care about them AND our community. Make a gift to the Greater Berks Food Bank (suggested minimum of $20 per gift recipient) and we will mail that individual a gift letter notifying them you have honored them this holiday season by helping to feed hungry neighbors in their name. Simply print and complete this form and mail with your donation to the Greater Berks Food Bank by December 15 to insure delivery of the gift letter by Christmas!
