Our barrel runneth over!

Hello friends!

We have been overwhelmed with joy to see our donation barrel for the Alameda County Food Bank filling up this season. So many great donations have come in. Thank you so very much for your support. These are troubling times for many people, and hunger is a real threat to many seniors, families and children here in Alameda County. In a land of plenty, so many go without. Your donations of food will be deeply appreciated, particularly as we approach the holiday season and so many folks are alone and hungry. Believe me- I used to go around to senior centers as part of my work, and I would see looong lines of people gathering on the days when the Alameda County Food Bank truck showed up with free grocery bags of food- for many seniors, they would not have gotten adequate nutrition without this gift. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
