Financial Partnership Campaign
Last Updated March 2013
The need for food assistance is great right here in our community and you can be a huge help by donating
on a regular basis or making a one time donation. We purchase food at about 10 cents on the dollar, which
means a $100 donation allows us to purchase $1000 worth of food. And of course your donation is tax
deductible on your Federal Income Tax return. We are a 501 (c)(3) organization.
Please indicate if you would like your donation to be applied to our building campaign or towards the purchase of food.
We are accepting donations via PayPal. Click on the link to the right to donate, or you can simply mail your check to:
