We’d like to recognize Valory Music Company artist [lastfm]Jimmy Wayne[/lastfm] as the Charity Energizer Bunny. He just keeps giving, and giving, and giving! This time Jimmy and Bryan Foods have partnered together once again to get more than 2,500 pounds of food to the hungry, this time coming to the aid of those in the Gulf Coast region affected by the oil spill.
The food was recently delivered to the Community Center of St Bernard in Arabi, LA for its Mustard Seed Distribution Program. “I’ve been really fortunate to be able to team up twice now with Bryan Foods to get food delivered to people in cities hard hit by disasters,” Wayne said. Earlier this summer, Wayne and Bryan got 2,500 pounds of food to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Nashville, Tennessee to help those in need following the devastating floods in May.
[photogallerylink id=24351 align=left]Wayne recently completed a 1,700-mile walk halfway across America for his Meet Me Halfway project. The walk and organization were designed to bring attention to homeless teens; particularly those in the foster care system that age out at 18, and without any support, often find themselves homeless.

Jimmy encourages you to get involved — in whatever way you can. Maybe you’d make a great foster parent. Perhaps you could volunteer to help kids in your community. And if making a donation is more your style, anything you can contribute to the cause will be helpful. Find an organization in your own community that helps kids at risk. Or text FOSTER to 85944.
