The Patch has once again teamed up with local charities this season to feed those in need over the holidays.
Now through December 31st, customers simply grab and purchase a pre-packaged $10 bag of healthy organic foods at checkout. The Patch will donate it directly to one of their charity partners. Each donation helps to feed the local community.
- Clearwater donations will go to Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP).
- Dunedin donations will go to Dunedin Cares Food Pantry (Dunedin Cares).
Items donated are non-perishable food staples, such as canned vegetables, canned beans and other canned goods. Last year, The Patch and its customers collected over $16,000 worth of food for the two charities. Customers may also choose the option of donating a holiday food bag online through Patch Curbside Pickup.
As a thank you for donating, customers will receive a free gift!
