I am on the Board of Directors for Neighborhood House. A St. Paul multi-service agency who has provided wrap-around services for immigrant and refugee families since 1897. The life-changing work at Neighborhood House includes our March Food Drive, an annual campaign that aims to fight hunger for Minnesota families. I’m hoping you’ll join us in this effort!
It’s estimated that 1 in 10 families in Minnesota—that’s over 500,000 Minnesotans--are currently experiencing food insecurity, meaning they can’t always afford the food they need for their families. From hardworking low-income families, our seniors on a fixed income, to those faced with a sudden loss of income, our neighbors need our help with getting fresh, nutritious food.
I would like to personally invite you to help Neighborhood House make a difference in the lives our neighbors by participating in this year’s March Food Drive. Please join me in being a part of this effort by donating funds (just $36 will feed a family of 4 for a week), contribute to our Food Markets, host your own food/fund drive or become a Neighborhood House volunteer.
We can do something to change the lives of so many in our community who need our help right now. Thank you so much for considering helping Neighborhood House continue their legacy of giving to those in the community who have the greatest need.
