You called and we answered! We kicked off the holiday season with our Second Annual Double Your Dollars Day on Thursday, November 7. Every dollar donated that day was doubled, thanks to gifts from CROSSMARK, American Mortgage, KeyBank, and anonymous individual donors, to help feed twice as many Tri-State children and families. With your generosity we were able to raise a grand total of $250,000 to help our friends and neighbors in need.
Freestore Foodbank President and CEO Kurt Reiber notes, “The holidays are a special time, but for many of our neighbors in need, from the urban core to our rural areas, holidays can be the most challenging time of the year. Your support is having a tremendous impact and helping to give the gift of hope this holiday season.”
Your generosity is making a difference here in the communities where we live and work. Because of your support, we will be able to provide food for a holiday meal to thousands of Tri-State families this Thanksgiving and December Holiday. Each household will receive a turkey and a box filled with the fixings for a holiday meal, including canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned cranberry or pumpkin, stuffing or rice, macaroni and cheese, and brownie mix or another dessert.
If you are still interested in making an impact this holiday season, there are plenty of ways to get involved. Thank you for your support and for joining us in giving the gift of hope this holiday season.
