From Montclair to Needles, we reach families throughout the Inland Empire! For a nominal donation, your donated, standard paper/plastic grocery bags, printed with your message will be distributed via our network of non-profit agencies, which will in turn use these bags to provide food to our clients! It’s a win-win proposition! Contact the Food Bank for details.
More and more companies are encouraging employees to get involved in their community. Some offer corporate matching!
What is corporate matching?
Many employers will match each donation you make to a charity. Your employer may ask you to fill out a form listing the charity and the donated amount; then your employer will cut a check to your charity for the same amount. Your donations to the CAPSBC Food Bank could double thanks to your employer.
Find out if your company offers corporate matching!
Check with the human resources officer or CEO at your organization or business to see if they offer corporate matching! We will do our best to publicly thank all corporate donors on our website and in the local media.
Some of the items above such as the bags and the large truck can be embossed with an acknowledgement thanking your company or organization or in memory of a loved one.
* Please call or e-mail us for make and model numbers.
