"can do" food drive 2010

can do food drive, 2009

One of CB2’s core values is to work with local organizations that make a difference in our neighborhoods—specifically nonprofit groups that provide food and shelter to those in need.

Our annual “can do” food drive is a Thanksgiving-time tradition which warms our hearts. This year it seems more important, necessary, and valuable than ever. So from November 8th-24th, in-store customers are welcome to bring in 7 non-perishable items and receive a 15% discount on any purchase, for details see the “fine print” below.

We love sharing the thrill of giving by dedicating our store windows to the donations, so watch for them once again and join in the fun. A reminder, food stuffs collected will go directly to each local food bank. Following is information about each organization—all of which were chosen as a partner by their local CB2 store.
