Thanksgiving Food Drive in Colorado!

  • 0 Comments
  • by: ColObama

To follow up on my Thanksgiving Day Diary Giving Back for Thanksgiving I’d like to share with you an inspiring story of an Obama for America volunteer in Colorado who initiated her own food drive canvass.

Meet Tatsue

“People were amazed — they were really stunned!”

This week, Tatsue and a small group of volunteers innovated a new kind of canvass.

Tatsue lives in a February 5th state, Colorado, and she knew she wanted to do another canvass to keep spreading the word about Barack Obama.  But she also wanted to do something to give back to the community in the spirit of the holidays.

That’s how she came up with the idea for a Food Drive Canvass.

When she and her friends hit the streets, they didn’t limit themselves to Democrats or likely voters — they knocked on every door in their neighborhood.  What they found were lots of people wanting to hear more about Barack Obama, and an incredible number of people, Republican and Democrat, all wanting to pitch in for the food drive. 

“Everyone was so surprised that a Presidential campaign would be doing something like this.  And we just stressed: this is Obama.  This is who he is.  This is what he’s done all his life — bringing people together to do good things for a common cause.”

And with that in mind, Tatsue and her friends collected an incredible 250 pounds of canned food, non-perishables and baskets of sparkling cider and trail mix, which they took down to the local soup kitchen, who were thrilled.

“You know, even my Republican doctor participated,” Tatsue says.  “He just thought it was so great — no matter what side you’re on, this is still a community.  And that’s just it — this whole thing, it’s not just about the campaign, or even the candidate.  It’s about the community.”

Beautiful.

To join the movement, head over to Colorado for Barack Obama and find an event near you. The campaign is hosting voter registration drives, caucus trainings, debate watching parties and other exciting events throughout the state.
