Instead of the “Ice Bucket Challenge” we have “The Nice Bucket Challenge”. Our Food Bank put this seven foot bucket in a mall and encouraged people to donate non-perishable items. They also encouraged individuals to take a “selfie” in front of the bucket and upload to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. They want to create more awareness around the need for people to donate items to Food Banks. This time of year is especially difficult with the holidays and colder temperatures/heating. Fast fact the majority of people who rely on food banks only go one to six times a year.
On our you can always start now journey we have to look at the bigger picture. Not just what is out there for us to explore but also what can we do for our community local and global. It is all about growing in all areas. Let’s start.
