The giving season is here and Patch wants to reward those community businesses in Brookhaven that give back to those in need during the holidays with an all-expenses-paid office party!
We've partnered with Buckhead Christian Ministry and are collecting canned goods and other food items from businesses that would like to participate in this local food drive.
Buckhead Christian Ministry provides compassionate emergency assistance to individuals and families facing hardship and offers meaningful opportunities to serve the Atlanta community.
Patch is asking everyone to be a part in helping eliminate hunger in our community. Please encourage your employees and coworkers to donate food items between now and Dec. 15 for BCM.
Kroger gift cards can also be donated! BCM purchases groceries in bulk from Kroger each month, and your gift card will be put towards our next purchase of food – just like a check.
Patch will come by your office to deliver the donations to BCM.
The company with the most donations wins an office party, provided and paid for by Patch!
Please contact Editor Kiri Walton at firstname.lastname@example.org if your business plans to help donate items to win a Patch office party.
