United Way hosts inaugural Holiday Crockpot Drive for military families in need
Last updated 10/29/2021 at 2:34pm
SAN DIEGO – Local nonprofit United Way of San Diego County’s inaugural “Holiday Crockpot Drive” is underway and will continue through Friday, Nov. 12. The organization hopes to collect enough donations to purchase 200 new crockpots for San Diego military families experiencing food insecurity.
Through this drive, UWSD is providing more than a crockpot. It’s providing ways to cook at home, sustainability, the opportunity to stretch a dollar, and most importantly bringing families together over dinner. Each donation will contribute a lifetime of warm meals and memories for the families that sacrifice so much for our community and country.
On Thursday, Nov. 18, UWSD will hold a distribution event to pass out the crockpot donations collected to local military families, just in time for Thanksgiving. Lookout for a media advisory for this in-person event as date gets closer.
Here’s the link to the “Holiday Crockpot Drive” landing page on the UWSD website: uwsd.org/get-involved/crockpot-drive/
United everyone can help children and families experiencing food insecurity have a warm meal, not only this holiday season, but for many years to come.
Monetary donations can be made online via the UWSD website above. The public can also drop off new crock pots at the front of the UWSD office at 4699 Murphy Canyon Rd., San Diego, CA 92123. In-person drop offs can only be made on Wednesday, Nov. 3 and Wednesday, Nov. 10.
