Sometimes it's better to donate money

Original post made by Donations: Items vs Money, East Palo Alto, on Dec 3, 2008

As someone looking to make sure their food closet of choice gets bang for the buck this year, I am going to give my hard earned dollars to Ecumenical Hunger Program. Like other charities, they can buy more with my money than I can buy and donate. This year service requests are up, donations are down. As someone on a very modest income, I have nightmares about others going hungry, but really don't know what it's like for myself.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
