Cultivate Community on #GivingTuesday

CULTIVATING COMMUNITY ON #GIVINGTUESDAY

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 is Giving Tuesday, your opportunity to show your support of our community farm, our food donations and a place for neighbors to connect and appreciate our 57 acres of open space.
undefined
Ensure the continuation of a neighborhood farm,curriculum-based education for all, and the donation of thousands of pounds of fresh food each year by making a donation on #GivingTuesday. In eight seasons, the farm has donated over 50,000 pounds of fresh food to those in need.
 
If you prefer, you can also send a check directly to the farm at 41 Ford Road, Woodbridge, CT, 06525. Keep an eye out for our 2017 Annual Report, coming soon to your mail or in box!

VOLUNTEER THANK YOU LUNCH

One of the main reasons the farm has accomplished so much in its short history is due to the generosity of our volunteers. We wouldn’t be able to achieve all that we do without you!  Please join us for a Volunteer Appreciation Party on Saturday, December 9th from 12:30-2:30.  Please meet us at Beecher Road School-South (40 Beecher Rd, Woodbridge, CT) in the (South) Assembly Room.  This is also a great time to stop by and chat if you have program suggestions for the coming year or are interested in getting involved at the farm. There will be food and some very grateful farm staff to greet you. If you like, you are also welcome to bring a potluck dish to share and celebrate the fall harvest.  Please RSVP by November 6th to Becca at operations@massarofarm.org.

INCREASE YOUR IMPACT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Online purchases are expected to represent 51% of holiday spending in 2017. If you’d like an EASY way to support the farm without lifting a finger, be sure to go to Smile.Amazon.com and select Massaro Community Farm as the nonprofit you’d like to benefit with a percentage of your online purchases. If there are other charities you’d like to support, it’s easy to update your choice of nonprofit.  Use Amazon Smile to support us and they donate 0.5% for every purchase you make!
The farm thanks this year’s event sponsors.
