It’s Saturday morning and while it’s a rainy day outside, you’ll find nothing but sunshine in our hearts as we share some local love with Porch Western Wake! We have a tradition of giving back to a community organization each time we reach a milestone of followers on Facebook (we reached the next 100 mark last month). This time, as you can see by the big smile, Jennifer got to pick the organization! She’s been a volunteer with them for almost 5 years now, currently as a neighborhood coordinator, and she couldn’t wait to share her passion for this organization with the team. Thanks Jennifer!
A little bit about Porch:
PORCH is built around the very simple idea of a neighborhood food drive. Here’s how it works, in three easy steps:
- Once a month, on a designated day, residents place a food donation (such as a can of soup or tuna) on their front porch.
- A volunteer neighborhood coordinator goes porch to porch and picks up the food donations.
- The donated food is transported by car to a central location where it is sorted, packed, and then delivered to local food pantries.
