Give Joy this Season: A message from Lupe and Tom Izzo

The mid-Michigan community has long been a cornerstone of our lives and basketball has offered us a unique connection to residents in this region. As we head into the holiday season, we reflect on another year and everything for which we are grateful.

In our household, the holidays are a time when we gather with friends and family, rejoicing together with warm meals at the center of those celebrations. Our favorite holiday meals connect us to loved ones, provide nourishment and bring joy from the simplest meals to the oldest family recipes. Meals have a transformative impact when shared with others. And when you support Greater Lansing Food Bank, you are sharing a meal with a family experiencing hunger right here in mid-Michigan.

Families in our community are currently struggling to put food on the table because of inflation, and for too many families the holiday season can be a particularly tough time. When schools close for winter break, children who depend on school meals are uncertain about when they will eat next. For their parents struggling to provide food every day, making the holidays special is a burden of stress. We urge you to come together as a community and make sure a warm meal isn’t a concern for any family this holiday season. Together we can give the gift of joy to neighbors right here in mid-Michigan.
