Let’s join together as a region give back to our communities!
This is a difficult time for everyone in our communities. With physical distancing and trying to “flatten the curve”, people around us might be struggling more than we know. Now is a time when people in our communities are having to rely on social services or non-for-profits more, but now is also a time when these services cannot fundraise in the ways they usually do. Events have been cancelled and organizations that they usually rely on might not be able to donate like they use to.
This has an especially large impact on our foodbanks.
So let’s show our social solidarity.
We are challenging our region to raise as much money as we can for our local food banks.
This challenge is not intended are putting extra financial stress on ourselves, our peers, or our coworkers. We want you to get as creative as possible! Some ideas on ways you can help are:
· Consider donating the money you might typically budget to buy lunches or for transportation that you are saving while working from home
· Get your friends involved and share our fundraising initiative on social media
· Hosting a virtual party this weekend? Ask your guests for a small contribution to your local food bank.
· Reach out to your network of friends and family on social media. Here is text for you to post if you would like to share :
