Help Marin's less fortunate have a joyous holiday season!
Ritter Center's Family to Family Holiday Program has provided holiday cheer to low income families and individuals in Marin since 1987. Generous donors are matched with families, seniors and disabled persons who may otherwise go without during the holiday season.
In December, specially chosen gifts are dropped off at our distribution center (location TBD). Our corps of volunteers organize hundreds of bags of gifts which are then distributed in a traditional "holiday morning" style (complete with pictures with Santa Claus). For those not registered for the program Ritter Center hosts a "Toy Store" for one day following the formal program.
7th Annual Clothing Drive Helps Those in Need
The 2014 Give n Clothe drive facilitated by Ritter Center, Goodwill, and the Novato Human Needs Center will take place on Saturday, September 20th. This drive will generate up to $20,000 in Goodwill store coupons for clients of Ritter Center and Novato Human Needs Center to shop at local Goodwill stores, but we need YOUR HELP to reach this ambitious goal!
Here's how you can participate: clean out your closets and drop off your clothing and household goods to any of the Goodwill donation sites listed on the drive flyer on Saturday, Sept. 20th. Can't donate that day? No problem! Thanks to our friends at Bank of Marin, clothing donations can be dropped off at all local Bank of Marin branches (except for the Tiburon location) the work week before the drive, Monday 9/15 through Friday 9/19.
Spread the word by telling your friends and posting on social media.
