Rochester / Virtual - Operation Food Basket - Volunteer & Donate

Operation Food Basket Holiday Campaign 2018

“Operation Food Basket started in 1981 and has been conducted annually since that time. It was started by a Xerox employee, Tony Carlisi who suggested to his fellow employees that the money spent on a $5 holiday grab bag gift exchange could be better used by buying and delivering food to needy families in the Rochester, NY area. Starting with a few dollars and few people, the campaign has grown to hundreds of volunteers who collect donations, buy, pack and deliver food directly to needy families just before Christmas.”

Several options are available to participate in the 2018 Operation Food Basket campaign.
