It is Better to GIVE than to RECEIVE
As you all know, this year is a tough one for most Americans.
Unemployment rates are the highest in 26 years.
Food banks & soup kitchens all over the country are really hurting and need our help.
They are running low on food supplies due to the increased number of hungry people showing up daily.
What can I do to help?
You can click on this link to access your local food bank in your community. You can donate money, food or time to these very much needed organizations.
We can't let them fail.
I am a member of Jersey Bites, and Deb is in charge of a large statewide campaign this month raising awareness to this very important cause. Please check out her site for more information.
For all of you NJ readers, here is the link to the NJ Food Bank. Please support them especially during this tough time of year.
Lisa from Jersey Girl Cooks had a good idea: forgo your daily Starbucks latte this week and donate the $5. per day to the local food bank. Great idea!
Thanks for listening.
