Thank you to each and every person who gave this #GivingTuesday. Together, we raised over $30,000 to provide 30,000 meals in 2023! This was by far the most successful Giving Tuesday we have ever had, and we are happy to report that every dollar given was matched thanks to a generous legacy gift and matching donor. These funds could not have come at a better time, as the numbers of local youth served with weekend food packs has more than tripled from October 2021 to October 2022. We had expected an increase as federal funding for students to receive free breakfast and lunch was not extended this school year, but are saddened to see the increase to this degree.
Thank you for your part in making these meals and support possible. We hope you will come join us for a community dinner or volunteer to pack food packs to see your gift in action. On behalf of all the kids, families, and seniors served by MVCC I wish you and your family a very joyful and hopeful holiday season!
