Fill the Foyer 2023
Fill the Foyer 2024 will start on Tuesday, Jan. 2, when City offices re-open after the New Year’s holiday. During Fill the Foyer, which runs through Wednesday, Jan. 31, residents are invited to bring in donations of money and/or non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and “winter gear.”
Items collected are given to Harmony Clothing Closet, Nevada Community Cupboard, Cubbie’s Cupboard, and Nevada Food at First, entities that help families in need within our community.
When it comes to wearable items, Harmony is asking people to donate only “winter gear” during Fill the Foyer. This includes hats, gloves, coats, snow boots, snow pants, and scarves. If you have clothing and other items, those may be dropped off directly to Harmony during regular Monday evening hours.
This year, Food at First is asking for the following donations: 2-gallon zipper storage bags, 1-gallon zipper freezer bags, quart zipper freezer bags, zipper sandwich bags, and full-size aluminum steam table pans and lids.
Items may be dropped off in the City Hall foyer during regular business hours, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays. If you are bringing in a cash donation, please leave it with one of our City Hall employees in the administrative office.
Fill the Foyer started as a way of keeping the “giving” spirit surrounding the holidays going for an extended time period.
Seasons Of Giving, as you can read about on pages 4-5 in this publication, will also focus on helping families with these same types of needs, and is the focus of the campaign during the first three months of this year.
