Community members can decorate for the holiday season while supporting their neighbors experiencing food insecurity by participating in the FeedMore WNY Foundation’s holiday wreath and centerpiece fundraiser in partnership with Lavocat’s Family Greenhouse and Nursery.
A portion of all sales will benefit the FeedMore WNY Foundation in order to help FeedMore WNY continue its vital programs and services that provide nutritious food access, companionship and well-being checks, nutrition education and free workforce development training to vulnerable community members of all ages throughout Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara counties.
The fundraiser will accept orders until Sunday, Nov. 19. Orders may be placed online at www.feedmorewny.org/wreath-sale. Orders will be available for pickup on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 1-2, at select locations in Buffalo, Clarence and Orchard Park.
A press release stated, “Fundraiser participants can place orders for beautiful, high-quality wreaths – ranging from 16 to 38 inches and including plain and decorated options. Also available are specialty candy cane wreaths, as well as centerpieces and door swag.”
Lisa Woodring, executive vice president of external affairs for FeedMore WNY, said, “Our annual holiday wreath and centerpiece fundraiser is a fun way to get in the holiday spirit while supporting the critical mission of FeedMore WNY. Last year alone, FeedMore WNY provided nutritious food and support to 197,500 community members throughout our four-county service area. Events like the wreath and centerpiece sale enable FeedMore WNY to continue to offer dignity, hope and brighter futures to our Western New York neighbors in need.”
