A 100th Birthday Party to Remember
Family of FIND Food Bank founder volunteers for his 100th birthday
What a special day when #FINDfood is not only blessed with the commitment to #StepUpToThePlate from our founders family, but also a donation that will supply 140,00 meals to our neighbors in need… The full story will leave you speechless!
It wasn’t a traditional birthday party, but 100 years after the birth of FIND Food Bank founder Wayne Robinson, his family came together to honor the man who wanted to fight hunger in the valley. Wayne Robinson’s 100th birthday happens to land within the last three days of 2017, which are also the largest donating days of the year. Stater Bros. Markets decided to join in on the celebration and gifted a donation of $20,000 to FIND. That amount will provide 140,000 meals for 2018, in addition to food donations collected from customers throughout the holiday season.
As we enter the new year and begin to start a new chapter, some of our neighbors in need are not as fortunate. Join the Robinson family & Stater Bros. Charities and give the gift that goes even further to change someone’s life: $1 = 7 meals.
FIND's Giving Society
It’s the season of giving, but one local group makes giving a priority 365 days a year. FIND Food Bank’s Giving Society makes monthly donations to stabilize FIND’s budget to make sure they can fund programs like school farmers’ markets over multiple years.
An early morning breakfast at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa brought together current and prospective donors to expand the program.
