Engledow is donating $2 to Gleaners Food Bank for every new Facebook “like”— feeding eight people with each donation.
For most of us, the holidays are a joyous time. We gather with family. We exchange gifts. And, of course, we eat.
But for a startlingly large portion of the population, the holidays aren’t a time of joy. Instead of worrying about what to buy their friends or family for Christmas, they’re worried about whether they will be able to put food on the table.
Hunger is a big problem in the United States—and it’s getting worse. Since 2005, the number of Americans seeking emergency food assistance has risen by 46 percent. The good news is, there are nonprofit organizations like Gleaners Food Bank working hard to solve the problem.
Since launching in 1980, Gleaners Food Bank has provided the equivalent of 230,000 meals to hungry Hoosiers. And today, their efforts are needed more than ever. That’s why Engledow will donate $2 to Gleaners Food Bank for every new Facebook “like” we get between now and the end of 2012.
Two dollars may not seem like a lot, but you’d be surprised at how far it will go. In fact, just $2 is all it takes for Gleaners to provide eight full meals to Hoosiers who otherwise might go hungry.
With a simple click of your mouse, you can put a nutritious meal on the table for eight needy people. So please, take a moment to help your fellow Hoosiers this holiday season. Hit “Like” on our Facebook page, and bring joy and nourishment to those who really do need it most.
