Holiday Giving

The holidays will look different this year for everyone. Families with low-incomes, who have been disproportionally impacted by COVID-19, need help to make the holidays special for their children. This holiday season, we invite you and your family to make a difference in the lives of local families by giving back to EFAA.

Stay on this page for information about holiday food donations, volunteer opportunities, and EFAA’s gift room. Otherwise, if you have any questions please reach out to…

EFAA’s food bank relies on individual donations to help make the holidays special for families and individuals facing food insecurity. Support the food bank by shopping for EFAA online, hosting a food drive, or dropping off food donations from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.

  • Fresh Produce

  • Canned Chili
  • Canned Pasta Meals
  • Vegetable Oil in plastic bottles
  • Shelf Stable Pie Crusts
  • Aluminum Roasting pans

You can also shop our Amazon Wishlist to order the most needed holiday food items directly to EFAA!

Holiday Gift Room

We are no longer accepting donations for our holiday gift room. Thank you for your support!

Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

Thanks to our generous community, our gift room opportunities have all been filled. To be added to our “waitlist” to be contacted should an opening occur, please email Sherry at

To ensure the safest possible environment for everyone, all volunteer positions are designed to limit contact and communications between volunteers, staff and families/participants.
