MARCH FOOD SHELF CAMPAIGN

It’s time for the March Campaign for Calvary’s Food Shelf!

“The March Campaign is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” emphasizes Henrietta Williams, Food Shelf Coordinator. “This year’s goal is to raise $9,000 and take in 900 pounds of food and other donations.”

In 2018, Calvary’s Food Shelf served nearly 2,100 individuals from about 800 households. “Half the people are children and seniors,” laments Henrietta. “No one should have to go hungry. And the March Campaign helps ensure that Calvary can continue helping people right here in our community.”

Financial contributions give the Food Shelf the greatest flexibility. The Food Shelf can use the funds to purchase what its clients need, often at highly subsidized prices. Typically, food shelves can stretch $1 into enough food for two or three meals.

In addition, Calvary’s March Campaign will have a weekly donation focus each Sunday. The weekly themes this year are as follows:

March 17:            Cereal

March 24:            Diapers and Feminine Hygiene

March 31:            Canned Fruit

But, most important, as Henrietta emphasizes: “Please feel free to donate in whatever way works best for you. We’ll put your donation to good use!”
