12th Night Gift drive

SDCE is a 501 (c)7 organization. Donations to our efforts to feed the hungry are currently not tax deductible. But, soon, very soon, we will also be a 501(c)3!

This is the first, but not last, call for the annual 12th night gifts for our friends in the Calliope.

Ship to, or drop off: 
SDCE  1205 Elysian Fields Ave NOLA 70117 

Our goal is 100 backpacks and gift boxes, but any amount is good. Not everyone gets all the same stuff. There are lots more men than women, and few children. This list is a suggestion. Basically, they need cold weather camping and survival gear. 
And whimsey.

Food Dried fruit, easy open canned fruit  Candy Treats Cookies Tuna pouches  Jerky SPAM Vienna sausage  Hot sauce
