This is our biggest food and fundraiser of the year, and it carries us through the summer months when donations are slower. Our goals this year are to raise $110,000 and 60,000 pound of food. Remember that your donation will go farther when it’s given in March. At the end of the month we receive a percentage match through the March Campaign. Thanks to your support, last year we raised over $100,000 and took in over 56,000 pounds of food. Our Campaign match was over $10,000! Please help us meet our goals again this year by donating during March.
