Instead of receiving birthday gifts this year, Abby has asked if she could raise money for the Salvation Army. Her goal is to raise $100 ($99.54 to be exact) to feed 42 people for Thanksgiving.
A Thanksgiving meal at our local Salvation Army is only $2.37/per person. Your donation of:
$10 will feed a family of four.
$15 will feed six people.
$20 will feed eight people.
17.4 million families go to bed hungry each night in the U.S. And an additional 6.9 million families face very low daily food security - that means they don't always know where their next meal is coming from.
Abby recognizes 2020 has been a struggle for so many families financially and otherwise. This is her way of trying to fill in a gap where they otherwise might not be able to - by providing them with a warm and nutritious meal for the holiday.
If you are in a position where you are able to provide a monetary donation for a great cause, Abby would be very grateful. Her fundraiser will run through her 12th Birthday, on November 8th.
Thank you for helping to make her birthday special and for helping to feed some families in need this Thanksgiving.
