Importance of helping
Why wouldn't you help? There are hundreds of starving people in america, and that means that your children could end up being one of them if you don't help out. There are many people's lives depending on those few cans of food that you could donate, and doing that would help them survive another day. Some of these organizations that will help the hungry like Heifer will help get people back on their feet. Heifer not only can supply them with food, it can help people in rural animals support their families by giving them livestock.
