This week, Congress will vote on legislation that would improve federal tax incentives for donating food and funds to food banks and other nonprofits, including donations of IRA rollovers to nonprofits.
We need your help to mobilize thousands of phone calls to make sure that the House of Representatives passes this legislation.
Today, nonprofit organizations across the country are holding a national call-in day and we need you to add your voice to this important effort. Help us make sure food banks have the resources they need to help struggling Americans by calling TODAY!
Calling Congress is easy!
- Just dial our toll free number, (888) 398-8702, listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted.
- Once you are connected to your Representative, state that you are a constituent, and give your name and the town you are calling from.
- Let them know you are calling about food donation and charitable giving tax legislation and deliver this important message:
As your constituent and supporter of the St. Louis Area Foodbank, I am calling you today to ask you to support food donation tax legislation that would help our food bank feed struggling Americans. Please support this and other charitable giving tax legislation that would help ensure our food bank has the food and the funds needed to continue supporting those in need in our community.
