Anyone else notice that it's only during the holidays...

That food drives happen. Why not all the time?

  • i was just thinking about this the other day. how horrible is it that we only think of the less fortunate around the holidays. people need help all of the time.
    but i think the theory behind it all is that people feel more giving around the holidays.

  • Most places we've lived that is true. It is not true in San Antonio though. There is a huge drive every spring and every fall for the SA food bank. They really make it simple for people who don't drive..they can leave their donations in the mailbox and the pstman takes them.

  • Often because that's the expected time. But I know that the food banks in my area need food all year long, and it's getting worse.

    My church does a drive on the last Sunday of every month.

  • Because people are in a giving mood. Also need is felt most in the holidays. But it would be wonderful if we did it all the time.

  • DS's school does a few around the year. Next month they'll also do a toiletries drive for the homeless shelter to restock them on deodorant/shampoo/etc. The post office does on that's not holiday-time, too, where you leave the groceries on your front porch for them to pick up.
