Food Pantry Donations for the Unemployed
Diane S. sent an email with the following information …

This is the final week for the Click for Cans program to get Campbell’s donations to our food pantries in Wisconsin.  It’s down to Green Bay and the Jacksonville Jaguars for the championship.  Jacksonville seems to be really pushing for a win this year.  As of today (1/20), the Jaguars are ahead of the Packers by more than 3,000 votes.  It would be great if everyone could try to vote once each day for this final push.   Go Packers!
