you give me hope."

Dear Ed,

In this season of giving thanks, I want to tell you just how much your generosity and support is appreciated. Your gifts of $4,410, of which $3,370 was matched $2 for $1 by Bank of America's Give a Meal Campaign, provided 35,450 meals to our hungry neighbors. We are very grateful that the Pittsburg Steelers Fans are also fans of Second Harvest Heartland! Thank you for choosing to fight hunger with your contributions.

If you're like most people in the heartland, you'll sit down this holiday and engoy a feast surrounded by loved ones. But the holidays place a unique burden on struggling individuals and families who are trying to pay the bills and still have something leftover for celebration and giving.

Thanks to you, we can make the holidays a little brighter for our hungry neighbors. For every $1 donated, we distribute more than $8 worth of food and grocery products to local food shelves, pantries and other partner programs which will serve meals to those in need this winter.

From your friends at Second Harvest Heartland and on behalf of those we serve, thank you for providing hope to those who need it most. Best wishes to you and yours this holiday season.
