There's no better way to support your community than supporting your neighbors in need, especially during the holiday season. We'll feature local charities on Spew throughout this holiday season with links to donate your money, supplies and time.

Give the karmic wheel a spin for today's charity focus:

Emergency Food Network

3318 92nd St. S., Lakewood
253.584.1040

The ongoing economic downturn is costing people their jobs, stressing family budgets, and putting people out of their homes. People who never needed help before have been forced to look to public assistance for the first time. To meet that need, the Emergency Food Network has been working since 1982 "to provide a reliable food supply so that no person in Pierce County goes hungry." Each month in Pierce County, more than 140,000 people seek emergency food assistance. EFN provides food and other essentials at no cost to more than 65 food banks, hot meal sites and shelters for distribution to low-income families and individuals.

Stephanie Genton, a volunteer coordinator with EFN in Lakewood, sent us word that they're short volunteers to stuff their annual appeal letter into envelopes. We're talking 3,000 envelopes people. The letters need to get out Friday. Therefore, EFN is asking volunteers to drop by their Lakewood office at 3318 92nd St. S beginning at 10 a.m. Friday to stuff. Give Genton a jingle at 253.584.1040 for more details.

When asked what else the EFN is short on this holiday season, Genton said anything and everything food related. "The need is so high. Money donations are always great since we can turn $1 into $12 of food. We offer daily bulk-food repacking Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.," she explained. More information about the repacking can be found here.

A great donation would also be food that can last for many years, with many different options to choose which come specially packaged and contain many meals in small packages. But they are not just the food that only get the job done, but they are delicious to eat. When my house had a power outage for 3 days, my family used our cars to power a pot filled with water which we them mixed with some emergency food packs, and it tasted great. all these food need is water and they are good to go.

On www.iemergencyfood.com/ there is a huge selection of drinks and foods that last many years (range from 5-25 or even 30) and they do offer samples before you but a package. And with the package, donations to many people can be made, and personally, I can't think of a better donation to anyone except long lasting delicious food.
