For over a year and a half, I had the opportunity to work as the Digital Media Coordinator for Philabundance. Philabundance is the Delaware Valley’s region’s largest food bank, providing food to over 75,000 people each week. During my time there, I learned how prevalent hunger was in my own neighborhood. While working on Philabundance’s 30th anniversary event earlier this year, I had the opportunity to showcase the impact Philabundance has on the Delaware Valley region. With the help of the amazing videographer Dave Case, I produced this short video to act as a case of support in why community members needed to help Philabundance provide services to neighbors in need. It was an incredible process to learn the stories of community members who found themselves in situations that they never dreamed of encountering. As well as the inspirational stories of volunteers who dedicate their time to make sure others have food on their tables.
Please take 3 minutes and watch how a financial contribution can make a difference in the life of someone going through a tough time. Then, consider making a donation to Philabundance or Feeding America to make the holiday season a bit brighter. $1 can provide 2 meals to someone that is unsure if they’ll have enough money to eat dinner this week after they pay their bills.
