As 2015 comes to an end, your year-end gift will make a difference in our mission to fight hunger in the New Year. We invite you to consider making a donation on this last day of 2015. As the holidays become a memory, the need remains present among the 30,000 people we help provide food for each month in Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee Counties.
Of the clients we serve, about 50 percent are women and children. Others include the working poor; those who are disabled or facing life changes like death, illness or divorce; abused women and children; and the homeless.
Your tax-deductible gift today will help provide them with fresh, nutritious food in the New Year, distributed through our more than 150 partner agencies across Southwest Florida.
One way to help is to make a donation to the Bank of America Give a Meal program to benefit Harry Chapin Food Bank by midnight tonight. Bank of America has partnered with Feeding America, our nationwide network of food banks, to help fight hunger. The Bank of America Charitable Foundation will match each donation (up to $1,000 per donor) two-to-one, with a maximum total Foundation donation of up to $50,000 to any individual local food bank. That means for every $1 you donate, Bank of America will match your donation with $2 more, up to $1,000 per donation, to benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank.
Just go online to the Give a Meal website, where you can designate donations to the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Any amount you can give will truly help families in need.
Click here for othe rways to donate before the stroke of midnight - or any time throughout the New Year!
Thank you for your generous support and for helping to fight hunger and feed hope in our community!
