Community Solstice Celebration

December 15th (2018)

Date details +

    You are cordially invited to a party at the Durham Shambhala Center, 733 Rutherford Street, Durham, NC on December 15, 2018. Also note that we will not be having our Children’s Day celebration from 2:00-4:00 p.m. that same afternoon. Children and their families are invited to attend the solstice gathering and potluck which will be full of surprises!

    As we celebrate the returning of the light from darkness, we hope you will share our concern for others by making contributions to the Interfaith Food Bank. You are welcome to bring them to the December 15 Winter Solstice celebration at the Durham Shambhala Center. Our food drive will run from now until December 31.

    Here are some basic guidelines for the food drive: They need proteins (canned meat, beans, low-sodium soup), breakfast items, fruits and vegetables, noodles, healthy snacks, milk and juice. For health and safety reasons, they cannot accept donations of:

    • Items void of nutritional value including:
      • Candy
      • Vienna sausages
      • "Fruit" drinks made without fruit juice
      • Sodas
      • Chips
    • Home prepared food including canned/jarred fruits, vegetables and preserves
    • Dented cans
    • Items without labels


    Please join us on December 15th to share the light.
