H.O.P.E. Holiday Food Drive

H.O.P.E. (Help Other People Eat) Holiday Food Drive | October–December

For some families in Dane County, a holiday meal is a luxury they just can’t afford. This holiday season, you can Help Other People Eatright here in our community—with a generous donation of your funds, your food, and your time at The River.

Why Give to Our H.O.P.E. Holiday Food Drive?

  • You will make the holiday season brighter for those struggling to make ends meet in our community, including children, families, seniors, and veterans!
  • Your support will allow The River to serve over 1,000 food-insecure households in Dane County every week before, during and after the holidays.
  • Because The River is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your donations are 100 percent tax deductible.
  • 95 cents of every dollar you donate will go directly to those we serve:
