WAKE FOREST — The 2021 Wake Forest Cares Holiday Donation Drive is an opportunity for area residents and businesses to contribute to one or more of the following town-sponsored initiatives:

• HOPE: Helping Others by Providing Electricity.

• Northern Community Food Security Team.

• Shop with a Cop.

• Wake Forest Firefighters Foundation.

• Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Scholarship Program.

These programs address community including hunger, home lighting and heating, youth health and fitness. Online donations are accepted through December at www.wakeforestnc.gov/wake-forest-cares.

Checks are also accepted and should be made payable to Town of Wake Forest (include “Wake Forest Cares” in the memo line), then mailed to the Town of Wake Forest, 301 S. Brooks St., Wake Forest, NC 27587.

Contributions may be designated to more than one initiative and will be distributed evenly unless otherwise instructed on the online donation form. For example, a $50 donation to two causes would result in each receiving $25. Town officials say 100% of all contributions will be directed to the designated organization(s) or initiative(s).

Each donor will receive a Wake Forest Cares certificate. All who donate are invited to share photos of themselves and/or their representatives holding their certificates through the online form at www.wakeforestnc.gov/wake-forest-cares.

Through the end of 2021, the town will recognize contributors by posting the pictures it receives on the Town of Wake Forest Facebook page and its online photo gallery. Donors are also invited to post their pictures on social media with the hashtag #WakeForestCares. For more information or to donate online, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/wake-forest-cares.
