EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – A non-profit organization is about to hold a donation drive that includes incentives for people who give the most food or money.
People or groups can make donations for Christmas in July next month. They have to be submitted to the Feed My People Food Bank by 4:30 p.m. on July 31. The organization says the community is always generous during the holidays, but that lots of people don’t know that plenty of families struggle during the summer months. It says not being able to rely on school lunches can add stress to families that struggle to put food on the table.
Feed My People is encouraging participation through drives at work or thrift sales to raise money for the effort. It will calculate totals based on the equivalent number of meal donations. One dollar represents five meals, and 1.3 lbs. of food equals one meal.
