I have some exciting news. We are working to alleviate hunger in our community by hosting a virtual food drive for Open Arms Community Outreach, Inc. You may be asking yourself, “what the heck is a virtual food drive?” Let me explain. Like a traditional food drive, virtual food drives help bring food to hungry children and families in our community. But instead of purchasing and donating a canned item, you can simply purchase a “virtual can” online.
Did you know 1 in 6 people in America face hunger? Thankfully, organizations like our local food bank are working hard to end hunger. Every day, they provide meals to children and families who are food insecure — while also working to solve the root causes of hunger. I have committed to raising $10,000 for my virtual food drive by October 1, 2020. Each can costs $2. So a donation of $10 will purchase 5 cans. When you buy more than one can you are empowering us to aid those who are food insecure in our communities. Can you make a donation right now to help me reach this goal?
Thank you so much for your support!
Based in the Carolinas, South Carolina to be exact the Community Food Pantry is a nonprofit outreach program that provides food to families who have found themselves in crisis. You might ask who are those in crisis. Those in crisis are people that have lost their jobs. Those in crisis are those who have lost income due to illness, medical bills, maybe a death in the family. Those in crisis are people who have had an addition to their family and cannot make ends meet. Those in crisis are the hungry in our community for whatever reason. We are not bound by any geographical scope and we hold a 501(c)3 classification from the Internal Revenue Service. We are staffed entirely by volunteers, and have been a part of this community for 12 years.
