YOU DID IT!!! #FeedTheNeed $5,000 Match Challenge Meets Its Goal!
Thanks to your incredible support and generous contributions during our #FeedTheNeed $5,000 Match Challenge for Heart of the City Mission Foundation, we were able to raise over $5,000 to support our Food Rescue & Distribution Program, thus meeting the guaranteed match amount for another $5,000 from Emley Design Group, for an overall total of over $10,000 raised to enable us to complete our van purchase!
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated ANY amount during this week-long match challenge — and to our “Loving Spoonful Sponsors” - those who donated $500 and above: Summit City Bicycles, American Electric Power Foundation, North Eastern Group, Orlie Brand, and Anonymous. Thank you to Emley Design Group and Dennis and Donna Emley for providing the $5,000 in matching funds!
We would also like to acknowledge the McMillen Foundation, the St. Joseph Community Foundation, our participating donor restaurants and the countless individuals and volunteers who have already donated to help fund and implement the distribution of rescued food items to underserved households in areas of food insecurity for the calendar years 2019 and 2020.
This van will not only help our Food Rescue and Distribution Program with multiple transportation trips for pick-up, storage, fulfillment, and delivery, but it will help HOTC Mission Foundation nourish people and foster nutrition where it is needed most.
Thanks to all of you, we are still able to make a difference — one life at a time!
