Welcome to my fundraising page for the Will Bike 4 Food event. A little about the ride:
This is a fun cyling event that helps feed our neighbors in need and end hunger in western Mass. by raising funds and awareness for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Every $1 can provide 4 meals for a local family who needs them most. Contributions of any size to my efforts are appreciated. 100% of your donation will go to support The Food Bank's mission (unavoidable credit card fees notwithstanding). All donations are tax deductible.
NOW MORE THAN EVER it's important for us all to do what we can to help, to contribute, and to support each other. Food is a resource that no one can do without. The Food Bank of Western Mass is currently helping so many people by delivering meals, providing curbside pickup and other services to those with decreased access to food because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
This year I have signed up for the 50 mile ride. At the beginning of March, we all were hoping that the Covid-19 crisis was going to be only a temporary "blip" in our usual routines and that everything would be "fine" again in maybe a month or so. I am updating this message in May, and I now expect to be under some level of social restriction for a lot longer. I still intend to do the 50 mile ride, even if it's solo, so please donate anything you can to help. Right now, The Food Bank is working enormously hard to continue feeding people who remain in need. Most of these people, and an increasing number of people who previously have not needed help but are no longer working/getting income will need food help for a while longer. Thank you for whatever you can give to help feed people just like yourself who suddenly found themselves without work and in a very tight situation. Thanks.
