As most of us are penning our wish lists and trimming the tree, there are thousands of families struggling just to put food on the table. A nourishing meal with family and friends is a holiday tradition that makes the season special. At The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation, we are committed to making the season brighter for families who might not otherwise be able to share a holiday blessing. This #GivingTuesday we are excited to kick off our annual holiday giving campaign to support our 6th annual Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise program. In keeping with the jersey number (27) Malcolm wears on the field, we are partnering with 27 local churches and social service organizations in both Philadelphia, PA and New Orleans, LA, to put food on the tables of 270 families in need of a holiday blessing. With your help, we will raise funds to continue to spread the spirit of giving, providing a turkey and all the fixings for a traditional holiday meal for families in the Big Easy and City of Brotherly Love! In addition to the holiday dinner baskets, toys will be collected to gift to children of the families we serve.Here are a few simple ways you can help us make a big impact:
- Make a donation on #GivingTuesday.
- Join us as a volunteer for the Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise events.
- Spread the word. Help us get the word out on social media using @TheMJFoundation and the hashtag #GivingTuesday.
