Giving Tuesday

HELP US REACH OUR $70,000 goal

Be sure to follow us on social media on November 27 and 28 for Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This year, we’re inviting you to “Find the Arrow,” give and share our messages on social media as we go #WayForwardTogether.


Thanksgiving Meals

Just $25 covers the cost of a holiday meal for a family in our community. Last year, 1,200 people received Thanksgiving meals from WayForward’s pantry. With your support, pantry guests can choose from a list of holiday favorites and ingredients that are traditional to their families, including turkey, stuffing, gravy, pie, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, wild rice, collard greens, carrots, and sweet potatoes.


Hold a Winter Food Drive

stock the pantry shelves

Food drives are an important way for WayForward to stock the pantry and help us continue to offer a variety of nutritious food. You can organize a drive in your office or organization — check our Top 10 list to see our most-often needed items or plan a drive focused on a theme, such as breakfast foods or personal care items. Get started by filling out our food drive form.
