TODAY is the day Congress may vote

Dec 09, 2014

TODAY is the day Congress may vote on a package that will expand and make permanent our food donation tax deduction and other charitable tax provisions. If enacted, this legislation would have a significant impact on our ability to secure more food, particularly produce. This is our last chance to enact this legislation before the new Congress, and we need to send a strong message.

Please make a call TODAY:

  1. Just dial our toll free number, (888) 398-8702, listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted.
  2. Connect to your Representative first, state that you are a constituent, and tell them your district is served by the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
  3. Let them know you are calling about food donation and charitable giving tax legislation and deliver this important message:

    "I am calling you today to ask you to pass the charitable tax extenders before Congress adjourns for the year. This legislation would help ensure our food bank has the food and the funds needed to continue supporting those in need in our community."

Be sure to dial back in and speak with both of your senators and your representative.

Thank you for your advocacy!
