Clarksville For Obama will host it’s National Day Of Service event, “Feeding Clarksville’s Needy,” on Saturday, January 17, at Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen, 215 Foster Street, Clarksville, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Loaves and Fishes is a non-profit association organized to help feed the hungry of the Clarksville area.
President-elect Obama started his career by serving Chicago communities struggling with tough economic times. He saw what could be achieved when ordinary people organized and worked together and that idea was at the core of this campaign.
In keeping with the theme that President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden have set for the up coming inauguration, “Renewing America’s Promise”, people across the country have been invited to mark this historic occasion with a renewed commitment to service in their own communities.
During the days leading up to the Presidential Inauguration thousands of grassroots organizations, community groups and agencies will participate in National Day of Service events across the nation.
Loaves and Fishes serves between 150-200 meals to the hungry six days a week and distributes food to area agencies through volunteer efforts. So their need of continued support and donations is greatly needed.
We are asking all supporters to come out and make donations of large can goods, meats, monetary donations, and dry shelf goods to this National Day Of Service event.
Join the community and elected officials at this special National Day Of Service “Feeding Clarksville’s Needy.” You’ve seen the power people can have when they make a commitment to serving others. Every time our nation has faced a challenge, the American people have risen to meet it. This new administration will face a number of challenges on day one, and you are the answer we need.
On January 17th, you can be part of a movement that will stretch from coast to coast, bringing together people from all walks of life acting as one nation, with a common purpose.
