TCT Helps the Communities in Need 6


Typically, this is the time the club would be supporting our members by providing resources through our TCT FUNd to have fun gatherings but this year is a different time due to the pandemic. We provide resources to our hosts to buy equipment (pop-up tents, coffee makers, sound systems, etc.) and help new rallies get off the ground with necessary start-up costs.

Also, when Terry and Michelle Bone took the leadership role in the club, they made a commitment to look for opportunities to contribute to charitable organizations during our events and within the organization components. There is no better time to start then right now.

The Tin Can Tourists made a donation to Feeding America to support the need to feed people during the COVID-19 pandemic. Feeding America and their network of food banks are continuing to provide food to people in need during these times of uncertainty. We are grateful to our membership to be able to offer community support during this time of need.

Here is the message we received after making the donation:

Thank You For Your Gift!

Your incredible act of generosity will have a profound effect on someone’s life. In fact, your gift today will help us provide 10000 meals to families in need. That’s truly phenomenal – and something we hope you take great pride in!

And it’s not just food you’re giving with your donation today, it’s also hope. When a bag of food or groceries is placed in the hands of someone struggling with hunger you can actually see their spirit lift as this one realization takes hold: someone cares.

And today, that someone is you.

And I’m not the only one who wants to thank you! The people we serve around the country also recorded a message that they asked me to share. I think you’ll find it heart-warming and encourage you to take a moment to watch it.

THANK YOU TIN CAN TOURISTS!

    I’d like to see an “admission fee” of a tin can of food for all our “Open House” events. The can could be donated to a local food pantry who would no doubt be willing to come pick them up.
