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 24 years, the SBC is giving back to the community that has provided so much to us. The goal for the 2019 SBC Cares Thanksgiving Appeal is to provide more than 3,000 families with food boxes for Thanksgiving dinner.



Help Us Ensure A Happy Thanksgiving For More Than 3,000 Families In The Rochester Area

  • Build Food Boxes: Rally your company to build food boxes containing the requested items. Please include a $25 gift card to ALDI, Tops, Walmart or Wegmans with each box.
