Please Choose to Make a Difference!

To friends and family across the country, I implore you to please take it upon yourself to directly support your local food bank or pantry with your dollars during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these food banks/pantries are being completely overwhelmed with the need for food in communities. If your community doesn’t have a food bank/pantry then branch out to a neighboring community or county. Search them out!

During the pandemic a lot of the food banks/pantries are not accepting food donations they are only accepting dollar donations so they can do their part at reducing the spread of the virus. These are almost always tax deductible but please don’t let it stop you if your donations are not tax deductible. Every dollar counts and lots of small dollar donations add up to fill grocery bags full of food for those that are literally broke because of this pandemic.

Food banks/pantries won’t be knocking on your door for donations, step up, search them out yourself and choose to make a real difference!

  1. Timely post, Steve.

    The favorite charity of my Dear late Father was the 2nd Harvest Foodbank; in lieu of flowers, donations were requested there and the Dane County Humane Society.

    ~ $3 large went to 2nd Harvest starting the 2nd week in March; he’d have been tickled at the timeliness of the gifts.

    Myself and the lovely and long suffering Mrs. Gotch sent an extra check to the Iron County Food Pantry last Saturday.

    In this great country, everyone should have enough to eat!

    1. We had already donated cash to our local food pantry because we know they needed an influx of cash but after I saw the really long line of vehicles waiting to pickup food at 9am today when I went to vote it was time to make a generic public appeal; so I’ve done so on Facebook and politely asked other bloggers to follow the lead and inspire others with their blog distributions. My work also delivered them a check today.

      I hope this appeal helps inspire others.
