We’ve had a great year for donations through our monthly charity auctions (the last one of the year is Dec. 7). But we’re not done yet.
At Amoeba San Francisco, we’re joining forces with the San Francisco Food Bank to collect canned goods and nonperishable items for singles and families in need through Dec. 23. Additionally, you can make a monetary donation to the San Francisco Food Bank online. For each $1 donated, the SF Food Bank is able to distribute $6 worth of food. The need is especially great now, as 1 in 4 residents of San Francisco and Marin County are in need of food assistance, and the need in both areas has grown by nearly 20% since 2008, according to SF Food Bank.
As a thank you for your donations, you will receive a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $25 or more at Amoeba SF.
At Amoeba Hollywood, we’ll be collecting holiday gifts for Five Acres, an organization that promotes safety and well-being for children by connecting them with permanent, loving homes. To donate, please bring in a new, unwrapped toy for a child age 4–16.
For your donations, Amoeba Hollywood will offer a coupon for $3 off your purchase. The toy drive runs from Nov. 25–Dec. 19.
Thanks again to all of our customers who have donated to charity!
