Donate to S.A.F.E. Sharing Tree for

Christmas Meals by December 20!

Each Christmas there are families right here in our own community who cannot share the holiday because they are struggling financially. With your help, the S.A.F.E. Sharing Tree will provide a Christmas Meal for hundreds of families.


Businesses in Saxapahaw have agreed to host a S.A.F.E. Sharing Tree in their business, which have tags hanging from them as ornaments. A person interested in donating can take a tag.



There are two ways to share with those in need:

1. Scan the QR Code on the flyer or tag to donate directly by December 20. Every purchase will be matched with a donated turkey. $35 will provide a turkey or $60 will provide an entire meal. You may also donate at our website and click the Donate to S.A.F.E. button and select the S.A.F.E. Sharing Tree option. You may also send a check to S.A.F.E. PO Box 286 Saxapahaw, NC 27340. Please put "S.A.F.E. Sharing Tree" on the memo line of your check.


2. Shop for non-perishable holiday food:

  • Instant Mashed Potatoes

  • Large Bag of Rice

  • Family Size Can of Green Beans

  • Family Size Can of Corn

  • Stuffing Mix

  • Canned Cranberry Sauce

  • Gravy (Turkey or Brown)

  • Canned Yams

  • Box of Family Size Tea Bags

  • Bag of Sugar

  • 1 doz. Packaged Rolls (non-refrigerated)

  • Can of Mandarin Oranges

  • Cookie Dough Mix (non-refrigerated)

Please deliver all donations to the Sharing Trees in Saxapahaw or deliver to S.A.F.E. by Tuesday, December 20th. S.A.F.E. will distribute your donation to a family in need in our community.

Thank you for helping us help those in need this Christmas! It Takes Us All!

Become a S.A.F.E. Sustaining Partner!

What is a “Sustaining Partner"?

A Sustaining Partner is someone who knows the difference between a moment and a movement.  A Thanksgiving or Christmas basket may satisfy a family’s needs for the moment, but a Sustaining Partner knows while we take holidays, hunger doesn’t. What about the day after Thanksgiving or the day after Christmas? Sustaining partners know baskets are for moments – when what is needed is a movement, a movement to end food insecurity (translation, hunger).
