And the WINNER of our website giveback is… BANDERA FAMILY CHRISTMAS DINNER!
FreshySites was overwhelmed and humbled by the response received through this contest.
There are so many good people doing so many worthy projects in our little part of the world — animal advocates, musicians, physicians, runners, furniture-movers, and many more — doing the not-always-so-glorious work to make our region a better place to be.
After a lot of consideration, we decided the BANDERA FAMILY CHRISTMAS DINNER is the perfect summation of the holiday spirit.
Beginning in 1989, each December the Banderas bring together over 150 unpaid volunteers to create 3,200 homemade meals to be served on Christmas Day at locations across Broome County. For so many people, the holidays can be one of the most bittersweet times of the year. These delicious meals are made with love and offered to anyone who feels that pain during December — regardless of age, race, or income.
“The biggest emphasis for us as we’ve progressed is we just want to keep reaching more people,” Bill Bandera said in 2015. Hopefully we can help them reach that goal with a beautiful new website.
