Consider donating to Second Harvest to make sure low-income Lorain County residents get enough to eat.

Every day, thousands of Lorain County residents — including seniors — go to bed hungry because they did not get enough to eat.

The poor economy and rising costs of food, gasoline, and housing have forced many people to choose between having a roof over their head or enough food on their table. Odds are good that you know someone who is struggling to make ends meet.

In Lorain County, 46,170 residents do not get enough to eat. Nearly one of every four children living in Lorain County goes to bed hungry every night.

Second Harvest works tirelessly to meet the needs of Lorain County residents, but it needs help. For every $1 donated, the nonprofit is able to provide meals to six Lorain County residents who would not eat without your help.

If you are not able to provide a monetary contribution to Second Harvest, please consider donating time or food.

Lorain County Office on Aging supports Second Harvest by operating two food pantries. It accepts food donations and always needs people who are able to deliver bags of food to homebound seniors.

Anyone interesting in volunteering is asked to call Sue Malik at 440-326-4800.
