Since the start of the Covid 19 pandemic, one of the most urgent problems in America has only grown worse.: hunger. Nearly one in four households have experienced food insecurity this year, and even before the pandemic hit, some 13.7 million households in the US experienced food insecurity in 2019.
Hightower Helping Hands has started a Holiday Food Drive through December 18th. To help with this effort the Lerner Group has created a team-Lerner Group Lending A Hand. Our team goal is to raise $2000 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The Food Depository is part of a united community effort working to bring food, dignity and hope to our Cook County neighbors. The Depository acts as a hub for a network of more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters.
Please consider making a donation today. A little extra incentive: Hightower will donate an extra $5K to the charity of the team that raises the most money!
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support! Angela
