This is one Campaign that I do every year; and I encourage everyone with a stockpile, or even without to participate. This is the simplest way of donating food to those in need. Sometimes I run out of time to bring food to a donation place, or it’s just not convenient to drive across town with gas at $4 a gallon just to make a small donation. This is a wonderful way where we can help and give back to the community. Each year when this campaign rolls around I have the kids grab some plastic bags and we go through our stockpile and pull out all the things that we probly won’t eat and are within 2-3 month of expiration that we know we will not need; we make a family affair out of this and the kids learn to give back and help others in the process.
This is so simple, all you do is get a bag, or two, or maybe three ready and place them by your mailbox on May 14th and your mail carrier will pick it up and take it for a needy shelter or donation center in your area.
