Congratulations!! YOU donated $15,425 as of Monday morning 11/16/2020 – what an awesome response to assist the San Diego Food Bank!
On top of your donations – PCA National has given PCA SDR a $750 subsidy to donate to the Drive!!
In total that is $16,175 – which equals 80,625 meals for fellow San Diegans!
♦ Outstanding – Bravo – Wunderbar ♦
I want to thank each and every one of you that donated to our PCA SDR Virtual Food Drive for San Diego.
The Food Drive started with a bag of rice I bought from Costco online. It ended up being a 20# bag of rice! Tom & I are not going to go through 20# of rice, so instead of returning it to Costco we decided to donate it to the SD Food Bank Distribution Center here in Vista, CA. When we arrived, there was a line of cars to receive food. The volunteers inside the distribution center were so excited to get 20# of rice and they mentioned how many meals this would provide. That got us thinking, we can do more.
I approached the PCA SDR Board with the Virtual Food Drive idea and want to thank the Board for their support getting this Virtual Food Drive off the ground.
If you still want to donate – please do. Your donation is tax deductible, people are still in need, and the Food bank will still count your contribution toward SDR Food drive. Click here if you would like to donate! Every dollar provides 5 meals.
I will continue to monitor the VFD for a while in case more donations come in, if the amount changes I will add to the Thermometer below.
Once this pandemic is behind us, we will find additional fun ways to support the San Diego Food Bank.
Thank you again for your generosity and making the PCA SDR VFD a HUGE success!!
Your ever so grateful PCA SDR VFD Chair,
