Give Thanks by Taking Care of Those in Need
Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays. I have fond memories of visiting my family outside of San Francisco, going wine tasting and playing some serious board games while my Uncle Freddy cooks the bird.
Since 2020 has been anything but normal, Thanksgiving is probably looking different for you like it is for me and my family. We have cancelled our Thanksgiving plans, as our governor is suggesting that no more than 2 households gather to lower our Covid numbers.
This got me to thinking about all the people that won’t get to have Thanksgiving this year either. People that are high-risk for Covid-19 who can’t leave their homes, families that live out of town who aren’t able to travel, and those that can’t afford a warm meal. I think this year, more than ever, is time to think of others. If you are in a position where you can make a donation for those who need it most, please do so.
I did some legwork to help make it easier to find organizations that help to feed the hungry. You can click on the images below to take you directly to their donation page.
Food Banks are located all over our nation and do amazing work. You can find your local food bank HERE.
Local Meals on Wheels programs are on the front lines every day, focused on doing all they can to keep older Americans safe and nourished in communities across the country.
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. For more than 40 years, Feeding America has responded to the needs of individuals struggling with food insecurity in this country.
No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.
If we all show thanks by helping those that need it the most, we can really make an impact on our communities and our country. I hope each and every one of you have a lovely Thanksgiving and please, stay safe during these crazy times.
