Host a ‘Dine In’
As a ‘Dine In’ Host, your contribution is inviting friends and family to your home anytime during the months of May through September, and providing a communal meal.
In turn, your ‘Dine In’ guests will be encouraged to donate dollars they would have spent at a restaurant to St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children, to help increase access to affordable, fresh, healthy food for North Philadelphia children and their families. (Of course, we welcome donations from Hosts, as well.)
Create a Fundraising Page
Create your own fundraising page in support of ‘Dine In, Help Out’ and St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children, and invite friends and family to contribute. Get started here: www.firstgiving.com/dine-in-help-out
