SERVE to kick off fundraising drive
SERVE will host a fundraising kickoff this weekend. SERVE gives food and financial help to people in need. But the agency recently had to stop giving away money, because they have to spend the money on food. SERVE is seeing more people than ever–and so many people that they can’t fit them all in their Stafford building. SERVE hopes to expand to build a warehouse to store food, freeing the office for other things.
The fundraiser will be Saturday, Oct. 15, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at SERVE, 15 Upton Lane in Stafford. The rain date is Oct. 16. The event will feature music, food and a moon bounce.
