Your donations are needed! Lincoln County Food Bank provides essential services to those in need of assistance with obtaining adequate nutrition. However, we often face a slow season for donations. The summer months and the time between major holidays can be a challenging time for us to collect enough donations to meet the needs of our clients.
SUMMER ACTIVITIES CAUSE SLOW DONATIONS
One reason for the slow season is that people may be traveling or enjoying summer activities and not thinking about making charitable contributions. Additionally, many individuals and companies may donate to food banks during the winter holiday season but forget about their needs throughout the year.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
So, what can you do to help during this slow season? There are several ways to make a difference:
Volunteer: We rely on volunteers to sort and distribute donations. Consider volunteering your time to help ensure that those in need receive the food they require.
Organize a food drive: Encourage your community or workplace to organize a food drive during the slow season. Reach out to local businesses, schools, and community organizations to increase awareness and participation.
Make a monetary donation: If you are unable to donate food or volunteer, consider making a monetary donation. Visit our Partner with Us page to donate easily and conveniently.
Share information: Spread the word about the slow season for donations and encourage others to take action. Share information on social media and with your friends and family to raise awareness and increase participation. We need your help!
In conclusion, Lincoln County Food Bank is a critical resource for many individuals and families and we are facing a slow season for donations. By volunteering, organizing a food drive, making a monetary donation, or sharing information, you can help ensure that we have the resources we need to support our clients year-round. Together, we can make a difference and help fight hunger in our communities. Remember, your donations are needed year around!
