|The End Hunger Games|
Mr. Colin Baumgartner
Alright friends. One of the great things about my work at the Foodbank is getting to see the impact on our community every single day. Thousands of pounds of food in and out of our giant warehouse every few minutes. Parents in our pantry relieved that they'll have food for their kids that evening. Hundreds of coworkers and volunteers determined, like me, to do more and help more.
As in past years, our staff is participating in our own Operation Feed campaign. Every March-June we ask area businesses and civic organizations to give back through this community-wide effort (both the longest running and largest food & funds drive of its kind in the country, by the way). We hold our own such effort in February to set a good example -- and that's where you come in.
To continue to do the work we do (and at the rate we're doing it) we need resources. I contribute myself and I hope you'll consider taking a few moments here to do the same. Every dollar to the Foodbank allows us to provide 3 meals to our hungry neighbors. Please know that this is the only time of year when I put together a personal plea like this and I won't begrudge you should you choose to give to a hunger-relief organization more local to you instead.
I do, however, reserve the right to begrudge many of you for other reasons of my choosing (like rooting for the wrong team, beating me at something, having a better car... you get the idea). But today we're all on the same team and I appreciate your help in the fight against hunger.
