Metro Silicon Valley is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties to bring hope, relief and security to our neighbors struggling with hunger. From now through January 2012, our Holiday Food and Fund Drive will help the Food Bank meet more of the growing need in our community.
Your support allows Second Harvest to continue to provide for the 1 in 10 people in Santa Clara and San Mateo County we're serving each month. Now is the time to take action! Here's how to help:
DONATE FUNDS: Visit http://shfb.org/donateonline
to make a donation and see how Second Harvest can stretch your dollar.
The average cost for donors to fill up one food collection barrel is $240. If donated to SHFB, that same $240 could fill up 3 barrels full of nutritious food, essentially tripling the impact of your gift.
DONATE FOOD: Drop off food donations in barrels located in our lobby and around the building. I will also be organizing drives around other off-site promotions so please help spread the word to friends & family. Please consider the most needed foods:
Meals in a can (stew, chili, soup)
100% Fruit Juices
Low Sugar Cereals
SPREAD THE WORD: Forward this email to friends and family or update your Facebook status to:
Help me feed local families this holiday season by visiting http://shfb.org/donateonline
and donating to Metro's Virtual Food Drive! Together we can end local hunger in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
