The “1 Can A Week, Yes We Can” program is designed to create an ongoing supply of food donations to help feed the needy families, families with children.
Many Americans are one paycheck away from being on the streets or are suffering greatly, as a result, of the economy, natural disasters and the many issues that foster homelessness.
This “1 Can A Week, Yes We Can” program allows many to give just a little to truly help in a huge way. Because we are asking for “1” can of food a week from many contributors over a longer timeframe, we are creating a steady stream of food donations.
This consistent giving adds to what is presently being provided by many wonderful organizations. However, despite the efforts, there appears to not be enough to cover all who are in need.
For the past 20 years, we have been working to help the homeless and hungry on a smaller scale, but this project is designed to grow over time and help huge numbers of people. Businesses, large and small, including, public and non-profit organizations are working with us as partners, to offer their locations as drop off points for the collection of can food donations, or are organizing employee programs to collect donations and establish volunteer teams.
We work with schools and community centers, to establish programs where our school children are helping other children in need, while obtaining their community service hours.
The can food donations, along with fresh fruits, vegetables and meat, are distributed to families.
Would you join us in this worthy effort to make sure no child in our community goes to bed hungry, by offering your support? We have to start somewhere, so why not right now with “you”! Thank you!
