Be a hero and help your community: Food bank director’s message

In today's reality, many are looking for a hero. Someone who will lift us out of our misery, take away the sting of today's headlines and get them through tomorrow; an individual with courage, willing to do the right thing, while so many others just talk.

In today’s reality, many are looking for a hero. Someone who will lift us out of our misery, take away the sting of today’s headlines and get them through tomorrow; an individual with courage, willing to do the right thing, while so many others just talk.

What about you? Yes, when you think hard enough, can you see yourself? No, not covered in Spandex of many colors, or a cloak that protects like armor. Think a little harder – you are our HERO. You have given when times are good and when times are bad. You give just knowing that your contribution will help.

(Tukwila Pantry clients) Nancy and Kenny, along with their daughters Ken and Alicia, need a hero like you. Yes, someone who will lift them out of their misery, someone who will lesson the sting of today’s headlines. You can be that someone, with the stroke of a pen, a simple phone call, a visit to our Web site.

You can be their hero.

Your contribution can put food on their table. You can be the motivation that puts hope before misery. You can take away the sting of uncertainty. Your contribution to the Tukwila Pantry will enable Nancy and her family to eat more nutritiously. It will provide them a sense of certainty when today so much is uncertain.

Yes, a simple meal can do wonders. And your gift can work miracles. Be a hero today, fill out the pledge card, send in your contribution, go to our website: www.tukwilapantry.org; and take the time now.

Today is your time.

Hero: an individual admired for his achievements and noble qualities b: one that shows great courage c: the central figure in an event, period, or movement.
