Holiday Food Drive
Navidad En El Barrio
This is an unprecedented year and IECC has decided to continue with the 7th Annual IECC Food Drive. Due to pandemic safety precautions we are just going to host this event at a smaller scale. This year only 550 baskets will be assembled. Therefore, each agency will be limited to 50 baskets. Participation will also be limited to organizations who have participated in previous food drives and by invitation. The number of volunteers will also be limited therefore agency basket pick-up times will be assigned on December 12, after 11:00am.
IECC is partnering with Navidad En El Barrio, a nonprofit agencies that seeks food donations from major food companies to create food baskets for the holidays. For over 20 years and more than a MILLION dollars a year worth of food NEEB has helped make Christmas a little brighter for needy families.
Donate and Volunteer
IECC is asking for your help in supporting our Holiday Food Drive. Now, more than ever, communities in the Inland Empire are facing record breaking unemployment and food insecurity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many members of our community, largely people of color and minoritized individuals, have found themselves unable to support their families during these difficult times.
Please use the form to the right to donate to the IECC Holiday Food Drive. Every $5 we receive will help to create a basket for a family in need. Donate today! A $20 donation can provide a holiday basket for up to 4 families in our community!
Holiday Food Drive
Our agencies share the mission of making an impact in the communities we serve through collaboration. Therefore, every year in December, the Inland Empire Community Collaborative (IECC) hosts the annual Holiday Food Drive. In partnership with over 80 existing nonprofit community organizations, IECC leverages the capacity of this nonprofit coalition to collect food and monetary donations to support at-risk children and families in the Inland Empire.
Trough the combined efforts of our coalition and community volunteers, IECC is able to assemble over 1,000 baskets of food for local families in San Bernardino County. In the past IECC has been able to expand our capacity by partnering with Navidad En El Barrio, a nonprofit agency that seeks food donations from major food companies to create food baskets for the holidays.
For over 5 years and more than a million dollars a year worth of food, IECC has helped make Christmas little brighter for families in need.
