Charity of the Month: Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee

by Staff Blogger | July 9th, 2014

Hunger isn’t a problem that just affects third world countries. In fact, there are millions of people in the United States who will go without a meal today—many of whom live in Middle Tennessee. The organization Feeding America says that one in four children in our state are food insecure.

Luckily, there are groups like the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee who can help combat hunger. The organization was launched in 1978 and has since served approximately 20 million meals to those in need here in Middle Tennessee.

The Nashville personal injury lawyers at Ponce Law are working to help Second Harvest achieve their goals by naming them as our “Charity of the Month”. That means for each new and unique “Like” our Facebook page receives throughout the month of July, we will donate $1 to the cause of fighting hunger.

If you wish to do more to help, there are ways! Second Harvest accepts monetary donations through their website. You can also set up an opportunity to volunteer your time sorting food items or serving meals through the organization’s website as well.

At Ponce Law, we believe in helping others in the communities we serve and encourage you to stay up to date with what we are doing to give back by taking a look at the community and news page on our website.

The Nashville Personal Injury Lawyers here at Ponce Law love helping people in need within our community. That is why we would like to spread the word about an event taking place this week in Middle Tennessee that will help put food on the tables of the less fortunate.

An announcement from the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee stated that for every new “Like” the organization receives on its Facebook page, Kroger Groceries will donate a jar of peanut butter to be distributed to those in need as part of the organization’s “Spread The Love” campaign.

The non-profit organization began collecting food donations in 1978, and they have since spread their services to cover more than 46 counties in the state. Peanut butter was selected as a donation of choice by the organization because of its low cost and high nutritional value.

Second Harvest is always collecting monetary donations as well. They add that a single dollar donation can help create 4 meals for the hungry.

The attorneys with Michael D. Ponce & Associates are always looking for new ways to give back to the communities we serve. The firm encourages those interested in our philanthropic endeavors to stay current on our latest activities by following our Facebook page.
