I love Thanksgiving. It’s one the best holidays we have. And while I’m incredibly thankful to be able to enjoy the bounty of the holiday in the company of family and loved ones, there are many people who simply can’t afford that luxury.
That’s why I’m writing this post today. More importantly, that’s why I’m asking you to help provide much-needed holiday meals to families that are struggling every day to put food on the table – meals that will give other families something to be thankful for this holiday season.
Over the next two weeks, I’m working to raise money for Bread for the City’s annual Holiday Helpings food drive. Bread for the City is a local non-profit that provides services such as food, clothing and medical care to vulnerable people throughout Washington DC. Every year the Holiday Helpings food drive provides turkey dinners with all the trimmings to thousands of low-income families.
This year, Bread for the City has a goal of serving 8,000 meals and they need your help. Just $29 will provide a meal for a family of four. $116 will provide meals for four families. But any donation, no matter how big or small, will help. So I hope you will join me in making a donation today.
Thanks for your support and Happy Thanksgiving.
