Help feed others

-

To the Editor:

Please think about those in our communitie­s who are experienci­ng difficulty feeding their families due to these stressful times. I encourage you to consider donating at least 10 percent of your stimulus check to the Food Bank, Plowshares, or other community support agencies of your choice in your area.

Ukiah Plowshares is serving an increased number of people — on site and through their “Meals on Wheels” program. The week of April 13 they served 1,304 meals, up 232 meals compared to a week in mid February of this year.

Ukiah Food Bank, on Wed. April 8 had 4 new applicatio­ns. This week so far, they had 400 new applicatio­ns. Let’s open our hearts and our wallets and help those who may be struggling. Please pass this message on to your contacts across the country encouragin­g them to do the same in their area.

“No one has ever become poor by giving.”- Ann Frank PLOWSHARES >> send checks to P.O. Box 475, Ukiah CA 95482 UKIAH FOOD BANK >> send checks to 888 No. State Street, Ukiah
