About the Event
THE CHARITY: Christmas is for Children, CIFC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing all children the love, care, and joy that comprise the spirit of Christmas. CIFC seeks organizations and individuals to contribute gifts and funds, benefiting +1,500 children each year through its Angel Tree program. In addition, each holiday season CIFC organizes a food basket program that assists economically-challenged families and homeless individuals.
HOW WE HELP: ALTRUSA DFW's Red Bag Food Drive is a project wherein we organize club members and community volunteers to distribute +7,000 Red Bags to homes throughout Southlake and surrounding areas. Community members can then fill the Red Bags with donated food, which is used to help Christmas is For Children, CIFC fill +1,200 food baskets for local families in need and 2,000 "Grab-N-Go" bags for the homeless.
ALTRUSA DFW contributes a significant dollar amount each year to underwrite the turkeys/hens that are included in the food baskets.
