New Wheels, Bigger Impact
Like magic, we can turn this one-time $59,200 investment into over $250,000 worth of food annually. It's true!
This campaign is raising funds for a much-needed cargo van that will significantly improve our ability to pick up and help distribute food to food insecure folks across Haliburton County and North Hastings regions in rural Ontario.
Last year, with an aging pick up truck, we managed to collect over 78,000 lbs of food donations, benefiting an estimated 1,000 people per month. With a cargo van, we know we can have an even greater impact.
With a proper cargo area to transport food safely and efficiently, we will be able to transport multiple pallets of food and personal care products, increasing the availability of essential supplies for food banks in our rural region.
The project is crucial as it fills a vital gap in our rural community - a reliable means to share and exchange food with neighbouring food banks so that we can all stock our shelves with diverse food options.
By contributing to this campaign, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring that more food reaches at-risk individuals in our community and neighboring regions. Your support will help us continue our work effectively and broaden our impact in addressing food insecurity.
Donations being matched - DOUBLE your gift!
What's even more exciting? We have a generous donor who's ready to kick things into high gear by MATCHING donations up to a jaw-dropping $10,000!
This is your chance to DOUBLE your impact! Every dollar donated in August and September will be matched - up to $10,000! Every dollar donated will steer us closer to our goal – a community where no one goes to bed hungry, where hope and nourishment drive us forward together!
So, fasten your seatbelts and join us on this exhilarating journey towards a brighter, stronger, and more nourished community.
Your contribution, no matter the size, will make an incredible impact. Together, we can create a future where no one has to face poverty alone and where all members of our community can thrive.
