ATLANTA, GA, December 09, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The season of giving is upon us and if you're looking for ways to support your community, the Atlanta Community Food Bank, a 4-star rated charity as determined by Charity Navigator, has some suggestions for how you can join them in the fight against hunger. Giving opportunities come in various ways and days, especially at the end of the year. For the Atlanta Community Food Bank, giving can range from cash contributions to volunteering your time to organizing your own fundraiser and more. The Food Bank works with more than 700 partner organizations in the greater Atlanta and North Georgia area, where 1 in 8 people are food insecure.
"The global pandemic shined a light on the incredible amount of need in our community, as well as the amazing level of support from those who are able and want to help," said Kyle Waide, President & CEO of Atlanta Community Food Bank. "We were so fortunate to be able to continue and even ramp up our services over the past two years, and it was thanks greatly to our supporters who stepped up and met the moment with us. The holidays inspire many to give and we hope that our community members will think of us when they are considering where to lend their support this year."
4-Star Rated Charity
When people give, they want to know they are supporting a responsible and trusted organization. As a 4-star rated charity, the Atlanta Community Food Bank has demonstrated strong financial health and a commitment to accountability and transparency. The 4-star rating is the highest given by Charity Navigator and indicates that the Food Bank adheres to sector best practices and that the organization executes its mission in a financially effective way.
Ways To Give This Holiday Season
Cash contributions are probably one of the easiest and fastest ways to give. The Atlanta Community Food Bank accepts online contributions through their website, www.acfb.org, in the form of a one-time gift or monthly contributions. Gifts also may be made in honor or memory of someone special. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank is able to provide up to four meals for those in need.
If you are interested in setting up a planned gift, you may contact the Atlanta Community Food Bank for more details and options.
The Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowable by the law.
The Gift of Time
Time is your most precious commodity and by giving your time you are providing a priceless gift to families in need. The Atlanta Community Food Bank has two facilities where volunteers can help sort, pack or distribute food: their main warehouse facility in East Point and a Community Food Center in Stone Mountain.
Although individual opportunities are available, you don't have to volunteer alone. You can plan to volunteer with a group of friends, neighbors, or even co-workers.
Hosting Your Own Fundraisers/Food Drives
Giving can be more fun when done with friends. Organize your own fundraiser or food drive with your office, school, church, sports team, or other groups to benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. When people join forces as a collective, they can exponentially increase their impact.
These are just a few ways that you help the Atlanta Community Food Bank. For more information on how you can donate your time, money, or both to the Food Bank, visit www.acfb.org. You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date on current events and needs.
