Cash donations are crucial to our operation as they are used to make up the shortfalls of food items just before we distribute to the families.
We also appreciate cash donations that are earmarked for holidays. For example, each Thanksgiving we distribute a frozen turkey to each family at a cost of $1,000 for 100 turkeys. A generous donor may help us to purchase 30 turkeys by donating $300 or however many turkeys they wish to donate.
Tosa Cares, Inc is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Your cash donation is fully tax-deductible.
