#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. We have two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, November 28th we have a day for giving back.
Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season.” Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. This year for #GivingTuesday Borderlands Food Bank is asking you to help us continue to distribute our rescued fresh produce thru our Produce on Wheels With-Out Waste Program. We have close to 70 Arizona host sites. The Nogales warehouse, where we rescue and store the fresh produce sits at the border of Mexico and Arizona. This means many travel miles at a high cost, to be able to reach Arizona Families with this nutritious produce. We are a non-traditional food bank working without any government funding and asking our supporters to contribute. This is why we are asking YOU to help us continue this program. At a cost of only .17 pennies per pound a supporter can take home up to 60 pounds of a variety of great fresh produce and at the same time help curb FOOD WASTE and contribute to SAVING OUR ENVIORNMENT! Everyone has the RIGHT to EAT NUTRITIOUSLY, what better way than to help support this re-distribution program.
Please donate to Borderlands.
