Donate to the Atlanta Community Food Bank & I'll Perform a Home Haircut!

 

 

 

As y'all have seen in the news, food banks nationwide are currently seeing a surge in demand. For many families, the recovery check from the CARES Act will not provide sufficient relief -- as such, I recently launched a fund drive to help the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB). If we achieve the $250 goal, I will, with the assistance of my wife Kyle, give myself a home haircut.

According to the ACFB, 1 in 6 Georgians - including more than 1 in 4 children - don't always know where they will find their next meal. This food insecurity has only been exacerbated by the current pandemic, so please help by donating whatever you can. The Atlanta Community Food Bank is one of the most effective hunger charities around: for every tax-deductible dollar you give, they can provide our fellow neighbors with enough food for 4 meals.

Whatever you can give will be appreciated -- every bit helps.

Thank you so much for your support!

From the Atlanta Community Food Bank
COVID-19 Response: Please Help!

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to impact those struggling with hunger. The Atlanta Community Food Bank is gathering every possible resource to provide food and supplies to all who need it, but we’re facing a sharp increase in demand.

More kids, parents, and seniors in our community are going hungry as a result of this ongoing crisis. Those who were already struggling face even greater challenges — not only to be fed, but to stay healthy. Nourishing food is the most basic need for our vulnerable neighbors. Your gift at this time is urgently needed and will help us:
  • Purchase emergency food to support increased food distributions across our network
  • Partner with schools to feed families who have lost access to school meals
  • Provide food boxes to homebound, at-risk seniors who can't leave home to purchase groceries
  • Deploy mobile food pantries to high-need areas of our community
Please give now to help those struggling with hunger — and let them know they’re not alone.
 
We don’t know what the future holds, but we know your kindness is needed right now. Thank you!
