If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other...
The phone call came in late Summer, that "RCS Helps" has selected the artwork of the Plein Aire Cottage Artists for their 2011 Holiday fundraising card. The Spiritual Yacht Basin Painting was selected.
In 2007 the Plein Aire Cottage Artists were the featured artists and over $18,000.00 was raised. We are again, hopeful, for another successful season.
|The Gift of Food is an all volunteer, student-led group that raises funds to buy food|
for the Religious Community Services (RCS) Food Bank. The RCS Food Bank
feeds over 5,000 people in our area every month, with the majority of these being children.
Each year, the money raised by The Gift of Food funds the RCS/Gift of Food
Endowment Fund within the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, which,
once fully funded, will provide money to buy food for the RCS Food Bank
for many years to come.
Each year, we design and sell holiday cards featuring the work of a local
artist for $20 each. When you purchase our cards and give them to friends,
relatives, and business associates, you are giving the Gift of Food, and your
donation will help to feed the hungry in our community.
It's easy to give the Gift of Food. Here's how:
1. You purchase a Gift of Food card, thereby donating a Gift of Food in honor
of your colleague, customer, or friend instead of sending the annual fruit basket,
wine, or gift certificate.
2. Each card is only $20 and is tax deductible. Tax receipts will be sent to you
by the RCS/Gift of Food Endowment Fund within the Community Foundation
of Tampa Bay.
3. For each $20 donation, you will receive a beautiful card (with envelope)
that tells the recipient about the good you and they have done to help feed
the hungry of our community.
Simply click on Gift of Food to donate or purchase cards securely
through PayPal. You do not need a PayPay account to purchase cards.
Thank you for your support.
