#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

On this day of national giving - nestled amidst the excitement of Black Friday, cyber-Monday and holiday celebrations - we invite you to pause and contemplate the good you can do right now to help fight childhood hunger and obesity in Washtenaw County.

Our Produce Distribution program partners with Food Gatherers and helps to provide the neediest families in the Ypsilanti and Lincoln school districts with free, healthy foods and nutrition education. We also volunteer as box packers at the Food Gatherers warehouse and serve meals at the Delonis Center Community Kitchen in Ann Arbor.

In 2013, 11,160 children were considered food insecure in Washtenaw County+, meaning they lack access, at times, to enough food for a healthy life. Your gift this holiday season could change a child’s life.

Below are a few examples* of how your gift could impact a family’s life:

$15 – Provide 12 heads of lettuce for distribution

$25 – Provide 9 meals

$50 – Provide a family with emergency groceries for 10 days

$100 – Provide 1 child an after-school snack for 1 year

No Black Friday deal could beat this opportunity to help children right in your own community.
