Thanksgiving 2008 Appeal from the Community Foodbank of New Jersey

Posted by: Roxy - Print This Post Print This Post
Rex and I just received a note from Kathleen DiChiara, President and CEO of the Community Foodbank of New Jersey, about their 2008 Thanksgiving Appeal, one of their most important fundraising campaigns of the year.
Many people in New Jersey don’t realize the number of their neighbors who are struggling to feed themselves and their families. The hungry are innocent children who go to bed with empty stomachs because their parents, even though they’re working, can’t always afford to put food on the table. They are elderly and disabled who are barely surviving on fixed incomes, unable to afford both their medicine and meals. They are Americans who simply cannot make ends meet with the increased cost of food and fuel today.

Community Foodbank of New Jersey provides food to more than 1,600 hunger-relief programs throughout 18 counties and distributes over 23 million pounds of food annually. A successful Thanksgiving Appeal will go a long way toward fighting the problem of hunger here in New Jersey. A gift of $25 or $35 will make it possible for the Community Foodbank of New Jersey to provide even more meals for the hungry.
