SHARING THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

SHARING   THE   HOLIDAY   SPIRIT

About This Campaign

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Firstly, we’d like to wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

This Holidays season we decided we wanted to do something different. We wanted to be able to share the Holiday spirit by giving back to our local community right here in Rochester! We work year round with people from our community and are well aware of problems with food access. Hunger continues to be a major problem not just overseas, but also right here in our backyard. 41 million Americans struggle with hunger according to Feeding America.

For our first (hopefully annual) charity project, we have decided to help Foodlink – a local foodbank here in Rochester. Foodlink is a community food resource center and the Feeding America food bank that according to its site serves the counties of Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates. (It has an 89% rating by Charity Navigator, which is great.)

We would love your support on this project so please head over to our fundraiser page and share it with all! Even the smallest amount makes a huge difference to others. So, let’s see what our clinic can do!

Thank you,
Abdullah & Briana
