Give Local!3

You shop local and you eat local, because you know exactly where your money is going, it creates more jobs, it benefits the neighbors you know and love, it reduces waste, and helps create a sense of community.  But did you know you also have opportunities to “give locally”? You can support The Richmond District Neighborhood Center for the same reasons that you eat and shop locally!


Why giving to RDNC is giving local:


o  We provide 150 jobs in our neighborhood

We provide youth programs at 9 public schools in our district

o  We supply food to over 700 people living in 94121 and 94118 each week with food that would otherwise be wasted

$0.85 of every dollar you donate goes directly to community programs

o  We create community by bringing together neighbors, merchants, community partners, and city leaders


Why RDNC is important:


o  We advocate for the needs of the Richmond city-wide

o  Families need affordable childcare and summer activities so they can work

o  Youth need quality afterschool options so they are prepared for the workforce and college

o  People need to feel a sense of community and belonging to thrive

o  Seniors need access to food in their homes so they can age in place

o  People need accessible options for exercise and rejuvenation


We have our finger on the pulse of this neighborhood and we need your help to keep it there! Help us reach our goal to raise $40,000 to support our Community Programs that directly benefit neighbors living in the Richmond District including our two food pantries, home delivered groceries program, community events, wellness classes, family staycations and more!
