Craft For Dinners Charity Drive

This year we are taking cash (preferred*) and non-perishable food items for Feed Nova Scotia. The holiday season can be a stressful enough time without worrying about putting food on the table, so let’s fill some bellies!

What does my donation cover?

If you make a cash/food donation (no minimum required!) you will have access to a LOAD of supplies to make CHRISTMAS CARDS! Unleash your imagination on blank cards for friends, family, loved ones, each other.. whoever! Can’t think of anyone to make a card for? We will have a special stack of cards specifically from Santa’s Elves for you to draw on that will be delivered to the seniors at Northwood Manor.

E3C will supply everything you need, but feel free to bring your own supplies.

*Why do we prefer cash? Feed Nova Scotia thrives on food donations, but FNS can make dollars stretch much further. If you feel more comfortable donating non-perishables, that is totally okay! No donation will be denied. No minimum required, $5 suggested.
