Virtual Tip Jar: Power It Local, Power It Forward (Feeding South Florida)

Donate directly to those in need today!

March 30, 2020

Power 96 knows you want to help and we know who needs it the most!

Power it local, power it forward with the Power 96 Virtual Tip Jar!

Each week we’ll be highlighting a new charity in Miami with the hopes of getting their message spread and donations made directly to those most vulnerable in our community.

This week learn more about the Feeding South Florida! Feeding South Florida, the leading domestic hunger-relief organization serving South Florida, is working diligently to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and the rapidly evolving and increased food needs of children, seniors, families and recently unemployed.

While the organization needs volunteers and sanitation supplies, monetary donations give Feeding South Florida the most flexibility to respond quickly to requests for assistance. With the increased demand and lower food supply, funds allow Feeding South Florida to hire temporary staff, add vehicles and food. Donate to the Feeding South Florida COVID-19 Response Fund below:

DONATE HERE!

If you're in need of food assistance, please visit our COVID-19 web page. Scroll to the bottom where it says, "If You Need Help" and click on the Agency Locator and Distribution Schedule. https://feedingsouthflorida.org/covid19/ We are providing food in the following ways: -- Through our network of partner agencies - about 75% are still open and ready to support you! Enter your zip code in our agency locator to find one near you. Please call first to ensure they're open. -- At our three pantry locations in Boynton Beach, Pembroke Park and North Miami - appointments required, cubrside pick-up only. -- Community drive-thru distributions that are continuously being added. -- Summer BreakSpot sites for kids age 0-18. Please know that we can provide mass drive-thru distributions in most communities. However, we are not currently set up for "last mile" home delivery. We are working as fast as we can to implement meals and something close to this option but health concerns, closed businesses, food supply, lack of funding, and staff capacity makes this difficult. If your'e an organization in need of food, please fill out the "Non-Partner Agency Assistance" form and a member of our COVID response team will reply. We are experiencing a 400% increase in reliance on our services and will respond as quickly as possible, within the same day but perhaps a few hours delay. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you, South Florida! #FeedingSouthFlorida #FeedingPalmBeachCounty #FeedingNorthMiami
