Help the Homeless and Needy

I don't think ever in my long history as an LJ member that I've asked for money. Today, I'm asking for donations to help the the food and clothing cupboard survive. We are in desperate need of mens socks, underwear, shoes and pop-top canned food. If you have it in you to send such items, we'd appreciate it. If you want to send money instead of items, please make checks (DO NOT SEND CASH) to OLD FIRST and in the memo write CUPBOARD. (Please include a note with your address clearly written and that you heard about it from Billi)

The cupboard has been functioning for over 20 years. Federal budget cuts hit social services rather hard this year. We lost our grant funding that I usually order food with. We are completely dependent on donations to fund our food and clothing cupboard. The cupboard is open every Saturday from 10am until the last person is served. This past week we handed out over 300lbs of food - the most we have ever handed out. If you want more information about the services that we offer or have any general questions, message me.
