Holiday Help: SERVE

I’ll be honest, I’m running out of interesting ways to introduce this project. For this month, I’m blogging a daily opportunity to help over the holidays. There’s a more comprehensive list at Rappahannock United Way’s holiday opportunities guide.

Today’s opportunity is at SERVE. The Stafford County nonprofit helps area residents in need of food and financial help. For the holidays, SERVE will give out Christmas food boxes. To make these boxes, SERVE needs: food, turkeys and $10 gift cards to area grocery stores. Want to help? Drop off donations at SERVE, 15 Upton Lane in Stafford. For details, call 540/288-9603.
