YDNC Collecting 5,000 Cans for Local Food Banks This Weekend

Y'all have seen the news - North Carolina is becoming increasingly impoverished and increasingly hungry.

As part of our Bootstraps Tour, the Young Democrats of North Carolina are collecting 5,000 cans of food for local food banks across the state. We need your help to reach this goal.

Please sign up to help give hungry families a hand up this weekend.

While we'll be taking the NCGA to task for 'cutting off the bootstraps' of poor and working-class North Carolinians, we don't want to talk about Poverty without doing something about it. Please help us lend a hand.
