A few quick paragraphs on how you can help with this month’s project.
You’ve read about The Pantry (www.thepantrydc.org) and how they feed hundreds and hundreds of families every month. You know they need shampoo, peanut butter and macaroni & cheese. You normally give, but want to share this story with others.
Co-workers, family, people at your church or small group may not go hungry with you and donate, but they may be willing to bring some of these needed items. Here’s how to get started.
Send out an email to your community. Include the links telling about this month’s project. Tell them you’ll be collecting shampoo, peanut butter and macaroni & cheese. Put a laundry basket near your desk at work. That’s it.
Not sure what to say? Here’s an email you can use:
I want to share an awesome organization with you. Hungry For A Day (h4ad.com) is a non-profit that challenges people to go hungry for one day so others can eat in their place. I’m not asking you to go hungry, but I want to share their August project with you.
They’ve partnered with a food bank (The Pantry) that’s feeding hundreds of families each month. Three things they always need are shampoo, peanut butter, and macaroni & cheese.
I’m going to be collecting shampoo, peanut butter, and macaroni and cheese through September 21st for Hungry For A Day. How do you help? Simply buy some of these items the next time you go to the grocery store and bring them to my house/office. I”ll make sure they’re delivered.
Absolutely zero pressure, but I wanted to share a way for you to bring hope to some hurting people!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll come by your home/office/wherever and pick up what you’ve collected. This is the August project, but we’re going to collect these physical items until Sept 22nd.
What are you waiting for? Start sending those emails!
(Since we are based in the Atlanta & Pensacola area, we can pick up in these areas. If you live outside these areas, you can easily donate at h4ad.com and we’ll use your donation to buy these needed items)
