Your support is crucial to food pantries. Food pantry volunteers everywhere are committed to feeding the hungry with dignity and awareness. People working in pantries know of the connection and kinship to every person who needs food.
When you help your local pantry, you not only strengthen your community, but offer some peace and harmony for those caught in a seemingly never ending struggle.
When you support a food pantry you help the volunteers in their work to feed the hungry. No pantry can succeed without you! Here are some opportunities for participation:
SEND A PANTRY A FINANCIAL GIFT.
Pantries everywhere need $$$ to keep going. Your contributions are tax deductible. Think of a food pantry the next time you prepare your taxes.
CONSIDER A PERIODIC DONATION.
It’s easy to set up a monthly or quarterly donation in whatever amount you choose on Paypal if your pantry of choice is signed up. If you prefer to send a check, let the pantry treasurer know so you can get some self addressed envelopes to make the job easier. Regular donations offer a financial flow coming to the pantry. This is, really, the easiest way to offer your support.
PAY A SPECIFIC BILL FOR THE PANTRY.
One of the biggest ongoing expenses a pantry has is gasoline for pantry vehicles. You can help in this effort when you buy a gas card for the pantry. The volunteers will be appreciate your generosity.
GIVE A DONATION TO HONOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER.
Often, when you give a contribution as a gift to a friend or loved one, the pantry will send a personalized card to the recipient acknowledging your gift. Include the name and address of the honoree, along with your tax deductible donation so the volunteer can do this.
