How excited are we to announce that we're already OVER HALF WAY to our goal of $5,000 to start a new Totes of Hope- Children site through our Facebook Fans Feeding Tummies Campaign? SUPER EXCITED! Our Facebook friends, volunteers and other generous donors have pitched in over the past 2 days to raise the thermometer on this much needed campaing. And we're THRILLED with the outpouring of generosity we're seeing in this short time period. Can you imagine how much we'll raise over the course of 2 weeks if we've already raised over $2760 in 2 days? Maybe 2 new sites will be provided......
From our food bank family to yours, KUDOS and THANKS! Click HERE to become part of this campaign and please spread the word!
There's a lot that goes into our world of fighting hunger and feeding hope. We couldn't have distributed near 36 million pounds of food last year without the thousands of people who donate time, funds, food and event organization on our behalf.
Throughout the year, there's a continuous schedule of events, promotions, food drives etc. that happen around our service area. The dedication and hard work that happens behind the scenes often goes overlooked. As do the faces of hunger - those who you come across every day who silently suffer and wonder where their next meal will come from.
Thus the origination of this FBR blog...we want to highlight stories of your neighbors who utilize the services of our nearly 1,000 hunger relief partner agencies. We also want to highlight the activies that you might not hear about otherwise and give you sneak peaks into the FBR world!
