SBC Cares 3000 Logo

While the economic conditions have been a challenge for many businesses in the Rochester area, there are thousands of families in our community that face far greater challenges.

This year, as we have over the past 23 years, the SBC is giving back to the community that has provided so much to us. The goal for the 2018 SBC Cares Thanksgiving Appeal is to provide more than 3,000 families with food boxes for Thanksgiving dinner.
