I'm participating in a bowl-a-thon on Saturday, April 26th for Solid Ground (formerly the Fremont Public Association). I've volunteered for them at Marra Farms, their community garden, a few times - they donate all of their fresh, organic, locally grown produce to a local food bank. Solid Ground is a fantastic organization and, let's face it, bowling is fun!
The money raised in the bowl-a-thon benefits their Food Security for Children program.
Food Security for Children (FSC) works to eliminate infant and toddler hunger and malnutrition by providing age-appropriate, high-nutrition foods and essential baby supplies to low-income families through Seattle food banks. FSC also strives to prevent hunger-related problems by connecting expectant and new mothers with nutrition education—and the community resources they need to take care of themselves and raise healthy children.
More information can be found here.
If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can make a check out to Solid Ground. The non-profit tax ID is 23-7421892. Unfortunately, they do not have a place to make donations for the bowl-a-thon online, but you can snail mail or hand your donation to me, and I will turn it in by hand on the 26th. They will also follow up with a thank you and receipt for your records.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
