UPDATE WE DID IT HOLY CRAP GUYS! $750 raised for the St. Hyacinth Food Pantry!
You did it again! So many kids are going to have a wonderful holiday because of you all. Our Internet is the best Internet.
OH HAI remember the food pantry we raised money for after the 2016 election? Remember how many families you helped to feed? IT WAS 300 FAMILIES.
The pantry’s been working hard and serving even more families in the past 2 years, and now they have a new project.
Every year at the holidays they put together a bunch of gift packages for the kids who come through, and these are often the only presents these kids get. Toys and books get donated all year round for the little ones, but the pantry would like to buy gift cards for the older kids, though, so they can go to a coffee shop or see a movie or get a treat without having to worry about paying for it.
I said I thought the Internet could help with that.
They need $750 to get a gift card for every kid. Can we do that in a week?
(And if you have gift cards to donate, or can get some from your workplace or whatevs, I can provide you with an e-mail address to send those, so let me know in the comments!)
