Our food totals are now up to 34,237 pounds. Spread the Word. As we get closer to our goal of 50,000, it reminds me of why we give and volunteer for events such as this one. Some of us do it because we care about our fellow man. Others do it because of a family member or friend who has left us here on earth who had the desire to serve and give. Whatever reason motivates you, fall deep into your inner heart space and find the reason to give. The desire to do right for everyone is within all of us, we simply need to search.
