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.
