Forest Hills Neighborhood Association has an annual holiday fundraiser most Decembers.  The FHNA board selected two of the received nominations for this fundraising:

  • Durham Technical Community College landscaping improvements
  • Iglesia Emanuel food pantry

You are invited to make a contribution to one or both of our fundraisers this year.  FHNA will match, up to $2500, the donations to each of the fundraising campaigns.

There are a few ways to donate:

If supporting via PayPal, Venmo or check, please use the memo section to indicate which of the two campaigns (or both) should benefit.  As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your contributions to FHNA are tax-deductible.  Please send an e-mail to fhnadurham.treasurer@gmail.com if you need a receipt for tax purposes.

Here is more information about the Durham Tech landscaping fundraiser:  If you'd like to learn a lot more, see this link.

Durham Tech supports its students in all sorts of ways from a food pantry to emergency funding for things like housing or electricity bills to success coaches.  As such, other items go unfunded.  We are asking for support to improve the outdoor campus environment.  Aging trees need to be replaced, neglected beds replanted, and eyesores hidden.  We are all fortunate to live in this beautiful neighborhood – I’m sure you appreciate how much this adds to your quality of life.  Your donation can do the same for tens of thousands of students for many, many years to come at Durham Tech!

Here is more information about the Iglesia Emanuel food pantry.  If you'd like to learn a lot more, click on this link.

For over 10 years, Iglesia Emanuel (https://www.emanueldurham.org/ena/Home.html) has been hosting a weekly food pantry for the Durham community.  This pantry had to greatly expand over the last few years to meet the challenges of the COVID shutdown, high inflation, and soaring housing costs.  The pantry is focused on helping working class and poor families sustain adequate levels of daily nutrition during periods of extended economic/employment hardship which disproportionately affects the Latino/a and Black populations of Durham.  We currently provide nutritious packaged and canned foods, fresh produce, dairy, and meat to as many as 2,000 individuals, or about 600 families, each week on Wednesday afternoons 50 weeks a year. While direct food donations from our partner organizations provide much of what we distribute, cash donations are used to purchase wholesale foods that fill critical nutrition gaps each week.

Thank you for your consideration!
