UCM has the opportunity this year to get some matching funds for the UCM Food Pantry from the Feinstein Foundation, based in Rhode Island.
Donations received at UCM by April 30, 2014, can count for the match.
To qualify, all donations need to be marked "Feinstein." Your donations can include cash, checks, online donations, and food items. Click here to donate now online and designate your gift to "Feinstein."
Any questions about the Feinstein Challenge, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for the important part you play at the heart of community, helping our local neighbors in need!
Below is information about Virtual Food Drives for UCM:
Want to help, but too busy to shop or get a food drive organized? A monetary gift to UCM, designated for "Food Pantry," can provide heart-healthy, fresh foods for local families who are struggling to make ends meet. Encourage your friends and colleagues to join you ... and we call that a "Virtual Food Drive."
Can you imagine how you would feel if you had worked all week ... and still couldn't afford to feed your family? More than 500 local families visit UCM's Food Pantry every week, about 80-100 each day. Today Feb.12, we had 192 families who received groceries!
Thanks to our deep discounts with our partner agencies, we can stretch your donated dollars a whole lot further, so the families that turn to us have enough to eat.
Click here to donate online now via credit card or check -- and designate "Food Pantry." Thanks for caring!
