One week till Christmas!

Christmas is just a week away, and here at Bread for the City, we're filled with anticipation for the holiday -- and, suffice it to say, busier than ever!

It's not just that we're still moving into our brand new facility. It's also that Holiday Helpings is still going strong in this final week. Indeed, still more families will come to us in the week to come, seeking help to make a holiday meal possible.

If you haven't yet given to Holiday Helpings, please give today. And if you've already given, please consider making another donation in honor of a friend or loved one as a holiday gift. Just give us your instructions in the comment field of our Holiday Helpings donation page by the close of business today, and Bread for the City will mail a special gift care to the designee of your choice. (Such gifts can be made after today, and we will send an email on Christmas Day.)

I am so proud of our staff for their steadfast commitment and capabilities. And I am so inspired by our generous community of donors, who have given us the support we need to meet this increased need. Thank you for making this Holiday Helpings one to remember.

In the meantime, please check out this photo album of special holiday portraits of Bread for the City staff, volunteers, and clients. This has become a recent annual tradition, and we're very thankful to Steve Goldenberg for his pro bono photography services.
