Sometimes it's better to donate money

Original post made by Donations: Items vs Money, East Palo Alto, on Dec 3, 2008

As someone looking to make sure their food closet of choice gets bang for the buck this year, I am going to give my hard earned dollars to Ecumenical Hunger Program. Like other charities, they can buy more with my money than I can buy and donate. This year service requests are up, donations are down. As someone on a very modest income, I have nightmares about others going hungry, but really don't know what it's like for myself.

I look forward to having the privilege to make cash donations this year, since I have a job and a roof over my head.

Knowing I can also donate furniture and clothes is incenting me to do a pre-Spring clean!
