In the midst of elections and the fast-approaching holiday season, we encourage our supporters to step back, take a deep breath and remember you have the power to help create the kind of community you want to live in. You can change lives–one kind act at a time.
This season, 1 in 8 of your neighbors will not have enough money to buy groceries, let alone a holiday meal. Sally is just one of the many people you can help. She’s a senior citizen raising her 17-year-old grandson on her own. She shared with us the questions she often asks herself: “What are we going to have to eat? Will we have enough money to get it? It is so helpful that we don’t have to worry about getting turkey or ham for the holidays because otherwise, we wouldn’t have a meal.”
There is nothing like the feeling you get when you help others. Are you ready to make a difference? There are different ways you can make an impact:
- Make a donation at foodbankccs.org/holidays. You can give in honor of someone – holiday giving made easy!
- Consider being a monthly donor because hunger doesn’t just happen during the holidays. Join at foodbankccs.org/nourish365.
- Get involved by giving your time. Sign up at foodbankccs.org/volunteer – don’t forget we need volunteers AFTER the holidays too!
Working together we will become a better and stronger community. Food has the power to unify us; let your neighbors in need know you care.
