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.

san francisco food bankAt 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.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING & AMOEBA HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE REMINDER

Posted by Billyjam, November 26, 2009 08:00am | Post a Comment

Happy Thanksgiving, Amoeblog readers! Above is Gloria Gobbler's reinterpretation of "You Can't Hurry Love" from a turkey's perspective, with reworked lines such as, "You can't gobble me on Thanksgiving Day. Why not eat tofu? Feed yourself the vegan way." And if you enjoy Thanksgiving themed, turkey perspective song parodies done to animation, check out the reworking of MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This" -- "U Can't Stuff This" or The Giblets' reinterpretation of Queen's "We Will Rock You" -- "We Will Eat You."  

And don't forget that tomorrow, Friday, November 27th, is when Amoeba kicks off its annual Holiday Toy Drive at all three Amoeba Music stores. When you come in to Amoeba over the next few weeks (cut off dates vary from store to store) we strongly encourage you to spread the love to those not as well off this year by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy for some needy child in your community.

And to help you feel even better about donating a toy for some poor kid, as a thank you for your generosity, Amoeba will give you a $2 coupon valid for any item over $3.99! All toys collected will be distributed to a local charity: Amoeba Hollywood will donate to Five Acres, Amoeba San Francisco will collect toys for Compass Community Services, and Amoeba Berkeley will provide toys to A Safe Place. For full details on the Amoeba toy drive run dates and the charities involved, click here.
