Red Cross Blood Drive



The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donations to help prevent a shortage this January. A shortage can be averted if at least two more donors come to donate at every Red Cross blood drive in January. To find a blood drive near you, go to and help save lives this month!

Canvases for Cancer



We held a very inspiring event in January called “Canvases for Cancer” in Ridgefield, CT. We received over 75 original paintings created by adults and children in the community who donated their beautiful artwork to our organization.

During our opening reception on January 8th, we made over $1,000 in painting sales. The artwork will be displayed throughout January and February at the Ridgefield Recreation Center, 195 Danbury Road in Ridgefield, CT. If you are local, stop by and take a look at the inspiration hanging on the wall.

“Like” our Facebook page, The Silver Platter Foundation, Inc., to see all the incredible artwork that is still for sale.

SPF Part of Global #GivingTuesday



After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes the most important day, #GivingTuesday, a global day of celebration dedicated to helping others through the gift of donations, time, goods, and your voice.

We are proud to be part of raising over $116M in one day! In addition to raising money, we also won $500 courtesy of Kiwi Country Day Camp in their online competition for #GivingTuesday. We received the most votes out of 19 worthy organizations.

Kiwi Mini-Camp



We held a very successful “mini-camp” event on Columbus Day at Kiwi Country Day Camp in Mahopac, NY. Over 150 children enjoyed a day of gaga, sports, cooking, archery, crafts, jumping pillow, SkyRider zipline, and more. The camp generously donated 100% of all proceeds and the kids had a blast!
