As 2012 comes to a close, please think of all our neighbors who faced the recent holidays with little or no food on their tables. So many are still hurting here in Eastern Massachusetts. Thank you to those who have already made a year-end gift. For those who haven’t, you can still make a difference with your gift today. Please help make 2013 a less painful time for children, families, seniors and others who are struggling. Your gift is tax-deductible. More importantly, it can be life-changing to someone who has nowhere else to turn. You can trust that 90.5 cents of each dollar we receive goes directly to hunger-relief efforts. Your year-end gift will help us provide as many as 32 million meals in the year ahead — working together with 550 member hunger-relief agencies and 30 direct-service programs. Thank you for reaching out to help those in need in 2013. Together, we can help end hunger here.
