As this unprecedented pandemic unfolds before us in real time, many of us with the means to do so have been stocking our cabinets with food and supplies to hunker down for a time.
While shopping the other eve I couldn't help but notice how much of a strain this time is putting on SO many families with parents in our community lacking enough food to feed their families, and wanted to bring some attention to this issue.
Since we are all in this together, it is together that we will make sure that those who need our support right now can truly count on it!
To help minimize this stress, Marlow + I have set up a food drive. The money goes directly to the FOOD BANK of NYC (a wonderful, ethical organization). During this time, the Board of Directors of the Food Bank is matching all gifts, dollar for dollar, up to $800,000. $1 provides 5 meals, but now, $1 provides 10 meals. Anything you can donate will have a big impact on the lives of people in our community.
If you are looking to lend a hand this is a wonderful way! Kindly help us reach our goal of $1500. (the suggested amount). With your help, we will reach this goal and feel confident in pushing it higher as we go!
With LOVE + GRATITUDE,
Shawnelle, Bryan + Marlow
