Tarrant Area Food Bank is once again offering its Holiday Card Service, offering donors a chance to help out the food bank financially and at the same time get all their holiday cards mailed hassle-free.

Each person that donates to the food bank before Dec. 11 can order holiday cards that will be signed, addressed and mailed by hand by food bank volunteers to the donor’s submitted list of recipients. The cards will also include a special holiday recipe for Peppermint Chipotle Brownies by The Reata Restaurant’s executive chef, Juan Rodriguez.

Each card also notes that a donation has been given to the food bank in the recipient’s honor.

Mailing lists will be kept confidential and are not used for any other food bank mailings nor are they shared with any other organization.
To see the 2011 holiday cards and to order the card service, go online to TAFB.org/holiday-card-service.html, or call TAFB Volunteer Coordinator JoAnn Biggers at 817-332-9177, ext. 109.

For cards to reach recipients during the holidays, the deadline to order the Holiday Card Service by phone is 3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. The deadline to order online is midnight Sunday, Dec. 11. Orders placed after those dates will be filled as soon as possible, but are not guaranteed to reach recipients during the holidays.
