We are entering the second month of the year. Also the month that the meals counter resets here on the website. It always makes our goals loom large. I start to wonder how we are going to make our goal amount. We still have the same amount pledged to our feeding partners for this year, 125,000 meals. For us to meet that goal we need to pack 10,416 meals per month (or 48 boxes). The need for the meals is so great, so deep. But I look back on our stats from last year and I know it is possible. I know it is possible because it has already happened. We exceeded our goals amount last year and I know that it can happen this year. We truly cannot do it without amazing volunteers that show up for these hungry kids.
We need you (and your friends, coworkers, neighbors, book club). Get your own group of amazing together and come pack at one of our regularly scheduled packing sessions. We can do special session in honor of events in your life (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.). Send a date request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Group organizing not your thing? No worries. Sign up for a spot to help fill a regular session. Click on the “Sign up to Pack” tab to see what is available.
Looking forward to having you pack with us! See you soon!
