A couple days ago I got a message from Triad Health Project’s Executive Director asking if board members could bring a bag of non perishable food to the meeting tonight. Sadly, I can’t make tonight’s board meeting because of a work committment so I decided I would try to make up for it in canned food. Without even a request, my coworkers pitched in generously to the effort. We were able to purchase six bags of canned meat. And while canned meat is far from anything I would typically write about on Mod Meals – I couldn’t have been happier buying it today.
With that said, if you are interested in chipping in around Thanksgiving, here are my two suggestions:
- Triad Health Project distributes over 200 bags of food per month to their clients affected by HIV/AIDS in the region. Until today, they were completely out of protein. This service is year-round and they are in need now. You can drop off food at their Greensboro location at 801 Summit Avenue.
- Since 1987, the Thanksgiving Fund has made Thanksgiving holiday meals available to Greensboro’s homeless, hungry, homebound and elderly poor. The meals are prepared by and served at Greensboro Urban Ministry, as well as delivered to the homes of those who are housebound. Last year, the Fund drive provided $12,000 to make 4,000 meals. If you are interested in giving cash for next week’s holiday, you can give online at www.cfgg.org
