Donating to your local food bank

Postby jaybezo » Tue Dec 23, 2008 1:16 pm

While many of us will spend the holidays counting our blessings and sharing dinner with loved ones, millions of people around the country won't be so fortunate. Donating to your local food bank will help provide a holiday meal to people in your community who can't afford one.

Don't forget the abandoned animals in the shelters. With all the foreclosed homes, many pets are finding themselves out on the streets. Shelters are overflowing and are out of resources. Whatever you can donate would be great!

Food banks often get quite empty in the new year (as everyone struggles to pay off credit cards and accounts used to buy Christmas presents) so maybe a way to help keep them supplied is to make a point of donating at least 1 item every shopping day to the fund. If everyone did that then there wouldn't be such a shortage I'm sure at the banks. It doesn't have to be a big item; a tin of spaghetti or baked beans, a box of weetbix or other breakfast cereal... It all goes a long way to families in need. Even a spread for toast is very useful.
