Yes, it does. I investigated Foodshare, and its website shows that it
donates food to many religious organizations for distribution. That's
why I wrote my first email.  Since your donations are going to a
different organization, I've donated at your page,

(BTW, I support the Billerica Food Pantry.)

As others have written, we could be more visible, and collect checks for
a charity, to be sent with a cover letter indicating our group. That way
everyone gets their individual deduction, and atheists get noticed
because of the larger total. What do people think?
