November News/Opportunities – two very important campaigns are happening this month to help us in the fight against hunger. Here’s how you can help:
Rick Collins Toyota Drive out Hunger: Help #PackThePickUp with Rick Collins Toyota! Food and cash donations can be dropped off at the dealership now through Thanksgiving to help fight hunger. Each donation qualifies you for a $5 service coupon! Donations to the drive can also be made through their online Facebook fundraiser for the Food Bank.
Woodhouse BackPack Challenge: Join Woodhouse Auto Family in fighting childhood hunger! Each child sponsored in our BackPack Program: Food for Kids qualifies you for two tickets to the “Make it Sweet” show on March 30, 2019, featuring Old Dominion and special guest Jordan Davis and Mitchell Tenpenny at CHI Health Center, while tickets last. Donate today! (NOTE: Please make sure you select Food Bank of Siouxland as your charity of choice so your donation stays local!)
Did you know that thanks to community wide support, the Food Bank of Siouxland was able to distribute just shy of 2.3 million pounds of food last fiscal year? Our agencies and programs provided food to an average of 16,088 people each month!
With 25,670 food insecure individuals living in our Siouxland community, including 11,030 food insecure children, we know that the work must go on. We must strive to meet the enormous demand for food for those in need.
YOU can help! So many Siouxlanders must rely on us for their nutritional support. We cannot let them down. Please help by making a donation now, by volunteering, by donating food, by spreading the word. Together, we can make a difference!
Ways you can fight hunger:
