’Tis the season for sweet treats, gift giving and helping those in need. Thanks to our annual See’s Candies sales, you can take part in all three at once! We are excited to announce that the proceeds from this year’s holiday See's Candies sales will support F.I.S.H. (Friends In Sonoma Helping), a local, volunteer-run organization right here in Sonoma Valley.
Serving Sonoma Valley since 1971, F.I.S.H. was originally established by local churches to provide emergency assistance to their neighbors in need. In the beginning, F.I.S.H. offered telephone answering service, food, clothing, rides, referral services and a listening ear to those who gave them a ring. Since then, the volunteer group has seen enough support to expand their services with a permanent Food Room and Clothing Closet, and providing rent and utility assistance. Through the years, F.I.S.H. has also helped support other local causes like Care-A-Van, The Crisis Line, Meals-on-Wheels, Sonoma Overnight Support, La Luz and The Migrant Workers’ Camp.
Comprised entirely of volunteers, F.I.S.H. continues to help local families in need now more than ever. How do they do it? With help from local people, churches, businesses and fundraisers like this!
Take part in taking care of our community this holiday season by picking up some See’s Candies the next time you visit our stores. Whether it’s a heavenly host or hostess gift, a special treat for your special someone or just some sweet seasonal snacking for yourself, See’s Candies are a great way to make anyone’s day merry and bright.
Drop by now through December 31 to pick up your See’s Candies and support F.I.S.H. in their mission to help those in need. It’s a gift that really does keep on giving!
