Well, we might not be feeding the world, but we’re trying to feed our little corner of it. If you’re wondering why you haven’t received a holiday card from COATS Staffing Software, it’s because we’ve opted instead to donate to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia.
We’re specifically giving to the Child Nutrition Programs, because as the Foodbank’s web site puts it:
In our service area, more than 80,400 youth are eligible for the free and reduced price lunch program at their schools. This is an indicator that the childen in our communities are not receiving the nutritious food they need to learn, and grow, which scientific research shows hinders their productivity as citizens.
We want the best for kids, and for future adults of our region. We hope you feel the same, and that you’ll join us in making a donation, of whatever size you’d like, to your local Foodbank or another organization that feeds the future.
