Selfless Snaps: Got $5 To Spare? Then Help Your Community With Jesse Tyler Ferguson!

The Great American Milk Drive
Got five dollars to spare and feel like doing a good deed? Jesse Tyler Ferguson knows how five dollars can go to making sure families in need get necessary nutrition!

Speaking with Rachael Ray, Jesse talked about how he’s part of the Great American Milk Drive. Never heard of it? No worries — you have now!

“Over 12 million families … don’t get the nutrients that they need,” Jesse said, adding that giving to food banks is “something that we need to do all year long” instead of just at holiday times.

 

 

“When I donate, I go through my cabinets and I sort of pick out the stuff I don’t want anymore,” he said. “I go to the grocery store and I pick up some stuff, but I’m always picking up canned goods and things that can stay on the shelf for a long time. The number one thing that food banks need right now is milk. And we don’t think about that.”

Jesse also talked about how easy it is to get people milk. You go to Milklife.com/give and a $5 donation gives a family in your community a gallon of milk (feel free to donate more if you’d like!).

Rachael Ray spoke about how much she appreciates this, and Jesse got a joke in about how he’s donating gallons right then by moving around and getting the cell phone in his pocket to work. OK, so maybe it’s best to actually hold your cell phone while donating, but we love the message!
