NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Although I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the first Talent Show for Fighting Hunger in Lawrence County, we are nowhere near what it will take for this community to support our families.
Food stamps are decreasing. Starting tomorrow will mean a change for many of our families who have already hit the hardship of losing their jobs. Now the challenge begins to stretch the food budget.
For months on end, I have witnessed at the local pantries and food banks the long lines that span down the blocks and around some corners.
SNAP HUNGER is available and yet with the government changes, most are approved for $16. Our community is still in need of supporting the families with supplemental produce. My desire and passion is to help as many as I can.
Collectively, we can do this and lift some of the burden of our community and enlighten a household, one family at a time.
Right after the holidays, we are orchestrating the new live auditions for the Second Annual Talent Show Fundraiser. Daniel Fusco, Macy McBeth and Annie Rosellini will be coordinating with me for our auditions that will be two days in March for the June talent show.
Months later, we will be pulling together a new fashion show in September.
Change is inevitable, so let’s make our changes positive for a community we all live in.
Kudos to everyone who supported our first effort. Now we must move forward to bigger and better.
Those with questions or suggestions can contact me at (724) 498-7902.
Also, churches that have donated before to the Pittsburgh Food Bank for the Talent Show, can contact me for the proper credit.
Anyone that has a nice, working piano to donate can contact me as well.
