Feinstein Challenge

🙂 It’s On! 🙂


Each year we partake in the Annual Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger. Alan Shawn Feinstein divides $1 million amongst participating hunger agencies like us based on how much we raise.  This helps to inspire the public to donate during the months where we run dangerously low on food and funds.

To be a part of this effort, donate food or funds between March 1st and April 30th and note that it’s for the Feinstein Challenge.  Without noting your donation, it can not be included in this challenge.

In 2010 we collected a total of $2,457.00 in funds and food.  In 2011 we collected $4,219.58 in funds and food.  In 2012, thanks to your help, we exceeded our goal of $5,000 in funds and food by $827.33. In 2013, with your help, we beat our goal of $6,000 by $155.82!

This year our goal is a minimum of $6,500.
