Here is a great idea which one of our donors started. For her birthday, she asked her friends to donate to the Siskiyou Community Food Bank instead of buying her a gift and she donated as well. She requested her friends donate $40.00 each in hopes of raising $400.00.


This is perfect especially  for those that do not want or need a gift (birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, in memory of, graduations, holidays, in honor of, etc.)


And, donations are tax deductible. Make sure to provide us with your name and mailing address and a donation statement will be mailed to you.
