1 in 4 people in South Georgia struggle with hunger daily, and 1 in 3 area children may go to bed hungry tonight. We are doing something about that, and you can help. On Tuesday, November 22, Second Harvest of South Georgia will distribute 2,000 food boxes to those in need in the Valdosta area. For $5, you can ensure that 1 family has food this Thanksgiving. You have the opportunity not just feed bodies but to feed the hope that tomorrow will be better than today. Each box contains 20 pounds of food and will, with very little supplementation feed a family of 4 for approximately a week. Boxes will be distributed at Valdosta High School beginning at 8 am and continuing while supplies last.
These sponsorships can come from individuals, families, churches, or even businesses. Sponsorships received before Thursday, November 18, can include a message of your choice for the box recipient. The messages (1 per box sponsored) can be “in memory of”, “in honor of”, “compliments of”, etc. Even simple messages of hope like “We hope this box brightens your Thanksgiving” may bless those who receive it.
Please help our neighbors in need by sponsoring a box today!
