2021 “Holiday Lights” Food Drive December 17, 18, 19, & 20

Calling all neighbors! Many of our neighbors put up beautiful lighting displays in their yard for the Holiday Season for all of us to enjoy! So join your neighbors in the spirit of the season to help restock the Richardson Network of Community Ministries. Look out for  “voting boxes” to place non-perishable canned & boxed food items at some of the most festive homes. One food item = one vote and “stuffing” the voting box is allowed!  All “voting boxes” & signs will be picked up on Tuesday, December 21st.

Last year nearly 1,334 lbs. of food was collected and we would LOVE to collect more this year! Due to the continuing pandemic, the need is much greater than ever before. All residents are welcome to participate. The participant in the “Holiday Lights” contest who collects the most food items will receive a $25.00 gift credit from Calloway’s Nursery and a 30% discount during your birthday month!  A Win-Win situation! Last year, we had 2 winners with the same number of food items collected!!! Winner(s) will be posted under Announcements, Nextdoor & Facebook by December 25th.

So be sure to tell your neighbors, friends, co-workers and family about this fun and helpful cause for the families in need during this holiday season. As they drive around the neighborhood to enjoy the lighting displays, they can “VOTE” many, many times.  Let’s brighten the holidays with your generosity for people in need by participating or donating food items.
