Hunger Free Holidays

No one should be hungry for the holidays!

This holiday season, Golden Rule is giving back. We are on a mission to provide meals to feed hungry children, seniors, families, and veterans. Golden Rule is proud to join the Hunger-Free Holidays Campaign with the Food Bank of Iowa! We will be doing a can drop-off the week of Dec 14th – Dec 18th at various locations across the metro, so be on the lookout for additional details on drop-off locations. Once we have collected the can goods, we will be constructing a can Christmas tree! Help us create the magic of providing a meal this holiday season. Join our Hunger Free Holidays campaign below and make a difference in the life of an Iowan in need. We would love to collect over 21,000 can goods or donate 21,000 meals across the metro. Golden Rule would like to wish you all a very merry holiday season and thank you for your ongoing support.
