Just because you can’t help everyone, doesn’t mean you can’t help someone
IRVINE, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2012
In this day and age, when you live in the land of plenty, hunger is an issue you don’t readily associate with people in America. 14.5 percent of U.S. households struggle to put enough food on the table. More than 48 million Americans, including 16.2 million children, live in these households (U.S. Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service, September 2011). When the number of people that need help are in the millions, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed.
“US Best Repairs” is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County to give that little extra at a time when many families desperately need it. “Just because you can’t help everyone, doesn’t mean you can’t help someone”, said US Best CEO Mark Zaverl. If we all just reached out to 3 or 4 of our immediate neighbors, those people we come into contact with every day, it would be a huge start in the fight against hunger.
The Second Harvest Food Bank was founded in 1983 by the Council of Orange, Society of St. Vincent de Paul and began providing food for the hungry in October of that year. Since its founding, the Food Bank has provided more than 272 million pounds of donated and surplus food to local charities. In partnership with over 470 member charities, the Food Bank helps feed more than 240,000 individuals each month.
The Food Bank is asking for:
- Easy open food (canned meats, tuna, spam, etc.)
- Canned vegetables and fruits
- Personal care items (deodorant, diapers, tooth brush/paste, soap, shampoo, etc.)
- Peanut butter
- Snacks (energy and granola bars, fruit leathers)
- Drinks (juice, bottled water, coffee, tea, etc.)
US Best Repairs is accepting donations November 1st-16th 2012 during regular business hours at their corporate headquarters: 2501 Alton Pkwy., Irvine, CA.
