In addition to the boxes that volunteers deliver to the Elder each May and October, there are a variety of expenses in service to the Elders. Funds are used to purchase food to provide a group meal for the Elders and their families as they gather for the food run, there are special giveaway items each food run (shovels, brooms, axes, etc.) that must come from these funds. All donations are tax deductible. A credit card processing fee is included.
