We're not very good at gift wrapping. But we do love gift boxes! And we love the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB). Did you know that a whopping 1 in 5 Alameda County residents uses the food pantry? And that ACCFB purchases 80% of the food they provide. Plus, most of the food they distribute is fresh produce? So while the bins all around town to donate food are great and provide variety to food pantry clients, monetary donations keep ACCFB moving.
This holiday season, purchase a gift box at Oaklandish stores or online, complete with gold ribbon and tissue paper just $3 each, and we'll donate 100% of that of that to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Yes, that means that all $3 of your gift box purchase will be donated directly to the food bank. The boxes are empty of course, just fill them up with your choice of Oaklandish tees or accessories, and you'll be giving the gift of local love, with guaranteed local support to the neediest amongst us.
So, starting today for #GivingTuesday, stop by one of the Oaklandish stores at 1444 Broadway or 3419 Fruitvale and get your holiday shopping done for good! You can also purchase gift boxes online!
Happy holidays to all!
