It’s ON! Contra Costa and Solano county employees are back in the friendly fray to raise funds for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.
Watch our video below, and find out how you can help.
Contra Costa County employees work in service to the County’s residents, but their generosity of spirit doesn’t stop there. Beginning each fall, they extend their humanity to donate to charity organizations representing a wide range of areas of need through the Combined Charities Campaign.
But wait, there’s more! Each November and December, staff members volunteer their time, energy and resources to raising money for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. With a friendly competition between employees of the two counties, and a little more than a decade of rivalry, our cumulative fundraising has surpassed the $1.6 million dollar mark. Even with such a spectacular achievement, County staff continue to aim higher each year.
The Food Bank has come to rely on, and appreciate, the support of County employees as well as that of the Contra Costa County community at large (yes, the public can participate in this challenge as well!).
The 2016 Holiday Food Fight was a big success, helping over 120,000 people in need in Contra Costa County. Help us make the 2017 challenge even more successful!
