Your best Valentine's gift (on a budget)
Rebuilding America one city at a time.
My 2012 New Year's Money resolution is to open a twenty - four hour community food pantry & clothing closet in all major cities this year.
America is a great place for struggling families, in this economy to rebuild their lives once again.
It seems almost impossible to gain the America dream with lost of jobs, income, homes ect..
It’s my goal to one day in the future to open a 24-hour food pantry & clothing closet.
This will be once a week from friday at 6pm, until saturday 6pm.
Each family will be able to put clothing items, shoes for them and their kids, all that can fit in a bag for a small donation of just $5.00.
They will take their receipt and give to the volunteers that are working the food pantry.
And receive two bags of food, that will have at least two meats, frozen veggies, snacks, drinks for kids, and personal hygiene, paper products like tissue, ect..
This is just one of my ways, im trying to help struggling families get back on their feet.
I receive dozens of emails from people all across America, waiting for me to bring my idea to their city and state.
I believe that america is an awesome place for new opportunities.
The people here in the United States of America are hard working and very friendly.
Most volunteers work schedules varies, this gives volunteers the opportunity to come out and get involve in this wonderful program.
