Since we are in the same district, I am not sure how useful these thoughts
I have watched a steady decrease in the number (percentage) of people
over the last ten years. My sons have made up for this by putting out more
(about 100 apiece this year), talking to the recipients - increases response
but I think that there is a generally lower response than usual.
This year the problem was complicated by the fact that the bags, donated by
prominently featured the saveway logo that one didn't immediately notice the
for Food information. I suspect a lot of people looked at the bags,
they were a Safeway add, and "bagged it."
