The COVID-19 outbreak has made 2020 a different and difficult year. For some, it has been an inconvenience. But for too many, it has been a devastating experience of economic struggle or even loss of loved ones. As this Thanksgiving holiday approaches, those of us fortunate enough to be on the “inconvenience” side of the spectrum have an opportunity to demonstrate our gratitude for all that is easy to take for granted.
As always, the organizations out there who make it their mission to serve are testimony to the best side of the human spirit. And they make it easy for us to contribute in any way we can. For some, it might be to take that big step to volunteer, but for most, it would most likely come in the form of a donation. What is undeniable in any year, but particularly here in 2020, there are many families in need of assistance.
Food Share Ventura County is something like the epicenter of food acquisition and delivery to those in need. They have been feeding the hungry in Ventura County since 1978. It began with eight friends in a garage who banded together to provide food for people in need under a bridge in Ventura. As of today, they operate out of two warehouses in Oxnard, totaling 36,000 square feet, and distribute over 13 million pounds of food, or nearly 10 million meals annually through nearly 200 pantry and partner programs. If you are interested in learning more about this outstanding organization or want to know more about how you can help, we encourage you to check out Foodshare.com.
We would also like to thank our broker, who through https://EverestforVC.com</strong brought attention to this need by encouraging all of us to participate in this act of compassion and empathy. If you are ready to commit to making a hassle-free donation right now visit Donate Now.
