Daily Bread sent this out on Wednesday:
With a shortfall of 140,000 pounds of food and $85,000 from the Fall Drive, Daily Bread is looking to raise 1.2 million pounds of food and 1.2 million dollars by January 4 in order to ensure that food continues to go out over the winter months to families struggling with hunger.
We need your help, because they need our help.
Just by taking one of these small actions, we as a community can make the world suck a little less!
