DON’T Volunteer at a Food Bank This Thanksgiving…- GOOD HQ
It’s the one day of the year that soup kitchens and food banks have more volunteers than they know what to do with. They don’t need you on November 22. They need you the other 364 days a year. (Well, you can skip Christmas and Easter, too.) Pick a day on your calendar between January 2013 and October 2013 and commit to volunteering to feed the hungry. Tweet and Instagram us a photo of your calendar commitment at #GOODthanksgiving and together, let’s put a dent in America’s food insecurity.
