Honor the Women in Your Life by Helping People in Need in Our Area
All of us have important women in our lives—mothers, spouses, partners, grandmothers and wonderful female friends. This year, the Ceres Society is spearheading a Mother’s Day campaign to honor these special women and also help to end hunger in our community. As Ceres Co-Chair, I hope that you will join me in this initiative.
According to a recent study by Feeding America, there are more than 210,000 children in the Delaware Valley that are food insecure. As a mother myself (of both a son and a daughter), the thought that there are mothers in the Philadelphia area who have to let their children go to bed hungry is truly upsetting. This statistic is one of the reasons that I joined Ceres Society—to try to have a tangible impact on this problem.
That’s why I’m excited about our new Mother’s Day campaign, through which you can have an impact on hunger and provide a meaningful Mother’s Day gift at the same time.
It’s simple—make a donation and Philabundance will send one of the cards pictured above to the recipient(s) of your choice. Philabundance can supply two nutritious meals for every dollar donated, so $25 buys fifty meals. And a donation of $50 buys enough food to feed a hungry family for a week.
Chocolates melt and flowers wilt, but the feeling of helping out others will stay with you and the special women in your life forever. I’m making donations in honor of my mother, sister and a couple of good friends. I hope that you do the same. These cards—and the meals they represent–will be the best Mother’s Day gifts we have ever sent.
