Why This Will Be a Good Weekend

feeding_america_tampabay_foodtruckWhy I will have a good weekend — it is thanks to Karen Griffin, head of development, at Feeding America Tampa Bay.

I called Feeding America Tampa Bay needing help for an Iraq veteran who had contacted me desperate about his ongoing battle over benefits. He had no money left for food after paying rent and other bills. Karen not only took my call, she offered immediate assistance despite the late hour and weekend.

It’s really comforting to know as a news reporter when I refer someone to a service that the individual gets help from a cheerful person and a supportive organization.

Thank you Feeding America Tampa Bay and extra kudos to Karen! Thanks to you a veteran and his young daughter also will have a good weekend and not miss a meal.
