Throughout November, the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association is teaming up with Hunger Task Force to bring you Enderis Gives Thanks; A Virtual Holiday Food Drive.
Please visit our virtual food drive to make this a wonderful holiday for those in need. Simply log on to www.hungertaskforce.org/give/EPNA/ and make your selections. Items range from milk to eggs, from a turkey to a complete Holiday dinner and much more. Give, then challenge your neighbors to match (or exceed!) your donation.
Why is this important now?
Unemployment remains roughly 2 times its pre-pandemic level in the greater Milwaukee area
With many schools going virtual, kids may be missing out on school breakfast, lunch, and after-school snack programs
Many local food pantries have seen traffic rise by as much as 30% during the pandemic
For its fiscal year 2020, Hunger Task Force distributed 13 million pounds, up from 9.9 million pounds the prior year
A Virtual Food Drive allows the community to help Hunger Task Force fight hunger while staying socially distant and safe. It allows Hunger Task Force to purchase the healthy, in-demand items that are in most need. Their purchasing programs also allow them to stretch donations further than you would be able to if you were purchasing items at a grocery store.
Every day, during this challenging time, hearts ache knowing the pandemic has created such need in our community. The Enderis Park Neighborhood has a powerful opportunity to reach out and join hands with those in need. Let’s make this a huge success and something of which our neighborhood can be proud.
