Abstract / Description

The work done at a food pantry has become even more important during COVID-19. More people are in need and the donations that people have been giving to the pantry are helping. This project investigated how and why people are choosing to donate to the Salem Pantry. After analyzing donation databases, more people prefer donating online rather than sending a check. With more donations coming in during COVID-19, it can be presumed that people are more appreciative of how important food pantries are for those in need.
