The CP Holiday Train will arrive in Wauwatosa on Tuesday, December 3rd and we are in need of volunteers to assist with the collection of donations of food and money.  Volunteers will work in pairs to push a decorated grocery cart and gather donations from those attending the event.  Volunteers will be needed from 3:30 to about 5:00pm.  This is an excellent opportunity for families as well as high school youth.

Sign up to collect food and money donations using THIS LINK!

Tosa Cares is fortunate to be the recipient of the donations collected as a part of the Holiday Train event.  Assistance will be needed in the days following the Holiday Train to sort, box and shelve the many pounds of donations.  Individuals and groups are encouraged to sign-up for a shift between Wednesday, December 4th and Saturday, December 7th.

Every year Tosa Cares distributes a frozen turkey to local families during our November distribution day (Saturday, November 23rd). This year we're reaching out to our community to offer the opportunity to pitch in for this great cause and donate a turkey! A $20 donation will purchase a single turkey, however donations of any amount are welcome.

Please help us reach our goal of 225 turkeys! Your donation will provide a family in need with a memorable Thanksgiving dinner to share with their loved ones.

Every dollar we can generate towards the cost of turkeys is another dollar we can instead use to stock our pantry and fill donation boxes with nonperishable food, fresh produce, and personal care items. Just as a reminder, we have zero administrative costs! All donations are used for purchases for the the pantry and your donation has a direct impact.

Donations are fully tax-deductible and can be made safely and securely using PayPal. Follow the link below and donate $20 today!
