ATLANTA — Imagine having to decide whether to purchase food or fill your gas tank. Whether to buy food or pick up the prescription your doctor says you need. Or whether to buy food or pay the light bill so your family won't be cold or in the dark as winter looms.
Our neighbors need our help. Communities rely on support from food pantries to feed their families, and you can help ease the burden of food insecurity during The Salvation Army and 11Alive's 39th Annual Can-A-Thon.
For the second year in a row, this year's Can-A-Thon is an 8-week push to end hunger in our communities. Our Friday, December 3 in-person drop-off event collected over 297,000 cans! If you couldn't join us in-person, there are two easy ways for you to give back now.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Because hunger never takes a holiday, we're giving you more opportunities to help fight hunger. Through Friday, December 31 you can help from home:
Thank you for spreading the word and for giving back. We can't end hunger without the support and generosity of those who can give back in times of need.
