Updated 3/27/2020 - PayPal donation Now Available!

Glastonbury is pleased to announce that we are now accepting online donations to the Food Bank through PayPal!  While we still welcome and appreciate check donations, this online method will provide a convenient way to contribute from home that is also more conducive to CDC's current social distancing guidelines.

Click here to make an online donation through PayPal.  Please note, PayPal charges 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction for processing.

 

During this challenging time, many members of our community are in need of emergency food and the Glastonbury Gives program is making a concerted effort to meet the increased demand.  To minimize social contact, Social Services is currently seeking monetary donations to the Food Bank in lieu of non-perishable food items.  Fiscal donations provide the opportunity to purchase grocery gift cards and minimize social contact with others as well as the food items themselves. 

To support Glastonbury Gives and help prevent hunger in our community, your monetary contributions are welcome and appreciated.  Checks should be made payable to “Glastonbury Gives” and left in the Tax Drop box at Town Hall, the Drop box near the entrance of the Academy building, or mailed to: 

PO Box 6523
ATTN: FOOD BANK
Glastonbury, CT 06033 

Please wash your hands thoroughly before writing/assembling the check and envelope and be sure to write “Food bank” on the envelope and in the check memo line.  Donors will receive a letter acknowledging their contribution for tax purposes.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.
