Camp Out Hunger 2020 – Day 2
Camp Out Hunger 2020 - The need is always great. According to the Salvation Army the need this year is the greatest it has ever been. The pandemic has amplified the need for the very basic items needed in life such as food. Food insecurity is at an all time high.
It's one thing to know that it is there but, as a community it is how we come together and address it that really matters. That is the very basis for Camp Out Hunger. Using the power of radio to connect our community
Thank you for joining us as a community to help fight hunger here in central Maine.
Camp Out Hunger 2020 - Day 2 got off to another very chilly and start. The weather gods say that warmer temps are on the way!
It's always comforting to see so many of you come out. Food donations, money donations, food for us to keep us going and even a couple new face masks were bestowed on Kristi & I.
Captain Patty Murray from The Salvation Army stopped by and we let her know that we are putting out the word to get more food into the U-Hauls. We have already met our goal for monetary donations, yes, of course we can always use more however the most is being divided between several area food banks, and the food donations are going to the Salvation Army, and so far...we are a little light on the non perishable food donations. We hope to turn that up a notch!
Please put the word out!
So many are touched by hunger, let's face it it is one of the most basic of needs and there is truly no reason that someone in central Maine should go hungry.
Thanks you all so much for your support. We will be on the scene, camping out, ready to take your donation 24/7 thru Saturday. Thank you all in advance for your donations, your stories, and your love for out community.
