If you watched any of our recent video town hall events or Zoom roundtables, you may have noticed me looking a little scruffier lately. That's because like many Americans, I've used this period of working from home and social distancing to grow a Covid-19 beard.
But as Illinois moves to re-open, I think it's time for a change (and my wife Julie agrees). I'm working to raise $5,000 for our local Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) for a "fund razor" to get rid of my quarantine beard. I am hoping you will join me both by supporting this important local cause and by helping me get clean shaven again.
In Northern Illinois, one in 14 residents, including nearly one in 10 children face food insecurity, meaning a lack of access to enough nutritious food to lead an active, healthy life. The economic stress of the pandemic is only making this situation worse. I've seen the important work of NFIB's network of food pantries, soup kitchens, and meal sites first hand, and I would be grateful if you are able to pitch in to support their critical mission during these challenging times.
Neighbors helping neighbors will be how we make it through this crisis, so thank you for your help fighting food insecurity.
