Did you know there are over 527,000 people in our region living at or below the poverty line? Over 188,000 are children at risk of going hungry every day. But each of us can make a difference with a simple donation today.
Help us fight hunger in our region by donating to the Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Why a fund drive? In short, funds result in critical and healthy foods reaching more people in need.
Monetary donations allow Second Harvest Food Bank to deliver greater amounts of healthier food to our neighbors in need. Just one dollar provides seven pounds of food into the hands of undernourished families in our region, so every dollar counts! Funds help keep refrigerated trucks on the road allowing them to pick up and distribute fresh produce, dairy and meats to over 700 partner agencies. The Food Bank can also purchase products by the pallet - securing much-needed items at great pricing.
If you cannot make a donation at this point, help us reach our goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to our page!
Thanks so much for your generosity. Together we can END Hunger!
