Default Charity Choices for the raffle

Please post your thoughts and ideas for the charity (or charities) to benefit from the raffle at the Forum Fest. I will begin! I think the donation should go to several food pantries in the Lakes Region. What say you??

Default Some ideas

There was a discussion about charities back in November, 2009. I thought the thread might be fodder for ideas for the FF this year:

Any local food bank would be my choice. Too many Americans including some of our forum members, myself included, are still unemployed and are fighting for survival.

Default I agree

I also think the Food Panty is a great idea. There are so many that can benefit from what ever we can give.

Just a suggestion here but if it is decided to give proceeds to a food pantry then I would say donated food should be brought to the FF also.

Default I agree!

I totally agree that the money should go to local food pantries-and the idea of bringing non perishable food items to the FF is wonderful...any comments??

Typically food pantries can stretch monetary contributions alot further than most people can at their local market. I'm not discouraging donated non-perishables, but $$$ goes further.

Default In the Citizen today

I am the "uninitiated" (AKA "dumb") when it comes to links, but there is an article on the front page of today's Citizen (7/3) about the St. Vincent de Paul Food pantry. This one happens to be the one we try to support...but...anyhow, "food" for thought, as we pick a Forum charity.

Default Last call!!

The majority seems to favor local food pantries for our charity of choice. Any more suggestions?

Default Donate Locally

In as much as one of Centre Harbor's churchs is probably in receivership, I would recommend keeping it local since we are holding the event there.
