FOOD PANTRY OF JEFF DAVIS COUNTY INC wrote -
For the seventh year, Rick and I are riding our bicycles to raise crucial funds for the Food Pantry of Jeff Davis County. How can it be that we have lived in this breathtakingly beautiful place that long?! We love where we live so much that we hope to make it a better place for everyone who lives here. About 20% of the residents depend on the Pantry for school lunch and supplemental food! And neither of the school districts have cafeterias or federal lunch programs! Of the 255 children enrolled about 48% live in families who qualify for the Pantry - yes, HALF of our school children live in poverty.
As many of you know, Rick and I have been riding our bikes for charity. Even through two broken collarbones and a hip replacement (me, sigh), through the mountains of Colorado and the glaciers in Alaska, we are dedicated to help our communities. YOU can help us do this. Just click on the Donate button and choose the amount that is best for you, and good for our poorest residents.
Our goal is to raise $5,000.00!! We hope you'll join us in this worthy venture.
