Food Drive Details
At our holiday party, we will also be holding a Food Drive in support of Nourish Pierce County. According to their website, “nearly 46,000 people now count on Nourish for food every month,” and “40% of Nourish clients are children ages 18 and younger. 1 in 4 kids in Washington lives in a household that struggles to put food on the table.” But the young are not the only vulnerable demographic. Nourish also says that “the fastest growing group among Nourish clients is people over 55. Many were downsized in the recession and have been unable to find new employment. Seniors are often dealing with lack of transportation, functional limitations or health problems.”
As Democrats, we are committed to improving access for all people to needed goods and services, and that includes doing our small part to help families in need this holiday season. If you can do so, please bring nonperishable food items or a monetary gift to the party, or to our November meeting, it would be appreciated. For more details on recommended donations, please check out this list by Nourish Pierce County.
