Around the Table 2019
Local Food for Local Good
It’s a time for gathering with family and friends to give thanks for the people and things we’re grateful for. It’s also a time for us to consider those in need: our neighbours who are hungry, homeless and hungry.
This September and October there’s a way you can help.
Around the Table is a fundraiser to support people in our community. People across Northumberland host their own dinner party and charitable donations on the day are made to Green Wood Coalition and Local Food for Local Good. Funds raised will support winter street outreach, food and clothing needs, and addiction recovery programming.
How It Works
Your dinner party can take any form from a pizza party to a potluck to a BBQ to a Thanksgiving meal with loved ones.
Register your dinner online and receive a host kit, invitations, cards and other tools.
Then, come together with your friends and family to give thanks and share gratitude. Your guests will be invited to make a donation of their choice either online through your personal web page (created upon registering) or at your dinner.
How To Register
Choose your registration option – Team or Individual (we recommend you register your dinner or party as an Individual)
Register as a Team if you have friends and guests who are going to join your dinner/party “team” to help you fundraise. The “Team” option will allow you and yours guests create individual fundraising pages.
Register an Individual to create a personal fundraising page for your dinner or party.
During the registration process you will be asked to give your personal fundraising page a name – this is the name of your dinner party (for instance, “My Thanksgiving Pizza Party”).
You will also be asked if you are fundraising in honour or in memory of someone. If this is a tribute dinner or party please fill in the text box with the person’s name so we can recognize this.
You’ll be prompted to add a photo and personal message to your guests (optional).
Once you’re registered you will have a direct URL (web link) to your dinner/party page. You can send this link to your guests or share on social media to collect donations.
We will also be in touch to send you your toolkit, card order and other creative resources to help you have a fun and memorable dinner!
