You’re five years old. Thanksgiving is tomorrow. Your friends are looking forward to mashed potatoes, turkey covered in gravy, and pumpkin pie.
But at your house, you’ll be lucky to have a bowl of cereal. Your stomach rumbles, and you hunch over to hide the sound as you step off the school bus. The sidewalk to your house seems especially long today. As you reach to open your front door, you close your eyes tightly and wish as hard as you can that tomorrow won’t be just another day without enough food.
Maybe this year, you hope, you won’t have to imagine your Thanksgiving.
Now, imagine a Thanksgiving without hunger:
Across Vermont, too many children, seniors, and families will spend their holidays imagining what a real holiday is like. As they struggle to provide just the basics, the idea of a bountiful holiday feast will be a far-off dream.
Great friends of the Foodbank like you don’t have to imagine because you already know how much relief and hope your generous act of kindness will provide. Will you please help generously today?
Giving our thanks to you,
Chief Executive Officer
