A call for a donation

A long-time family friend, my youngest sister's best friend, is on the board of directors of a soup kitchen and food pantry in Malden, Massachusetts that provided in 2015 the equivalent of 1,030,000 meals to hungry, homeless and isolated people. I am asking that if you have found my salary cap pages useful that if you are able to do so, please make a donation to the Bread of Life soup kitchen/food pantry.
You can make a donation below by clicking on the Donate button.

I am hoping to raise five thousand dollars by the time the Patriots win their 5th Super Bowl. Please mention this website by typing in Patscap's Drive for Five in the Purpose Field.
You can have a portion of your Amazon.Com purchases donated to the Bread of Life.
