San Antonio food bank, in memory of Brenda Kelly

My mother, Brenda Kelly, a resident of San Antonio, lost her life, on November 23, 2020, to COVID;  16 days after testing positive.  Several moths ago, my mother was watching her local news and saw a story of people waiting hours and hours in line, at the San Antonio food bank, to receive food for their families.  This was extremely upsetting to her.   So, she decided to start her own campaign.  She typed up flyers, and she and her dog Lincoln, walked her neighborhood, distributing the flyers to the homes in her neighborhood.  She would then collect the donated food weekly, and make the trip to the food bank to donate it in person.  She was extremely passionate about this, even if, it was only a small amount of food.  She knew, any amount of food, would indeed, help those in need.  

Many people have reached out, asking what they can do to help.  Stephen, Erin and I, have decided that the best way to honor her legacy, during this pandemic, would be to continue her passion to support the San Antonio food bank.  So I am creating this fundraiser to directly benefit the San Antonio food bank, and the people who so desperately need food.  Any amount will help.  I am also asking that anyone reading this, please, please, please, share this campaign, so that others might want to join this cause.

Please join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit San Antonio Food Bank, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that meant so much to my mother, Brenda Kelly52871628_160648155077507_r.jpeg.
