Birkey's Illini Fighting Hunger Campaign
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Mar 07, 2015
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Mar 08, 2015
Last spring, Birkey’s Farm Store employees and their customers donated 1 million meals to local foodbanks. Because of the success of this 60-Day Hunger Drive campaign, Birkey’s was asked to be the official sponsor of the Illini Fighting Hunger program during the 2014-2015 basketball season.
We're inviting the Fighting Illini Nation to join us to fight hunger:
At each home basketball game, Birkey's will ask fans in attendance at the State Farm Center to text in a donation.
Birkey’s customers can participate, too, and receive an entry into our raffle:
A $10 donation is an entry into the raffle for the ultimate tailgating package: a Traeger smoker, Yeti cooler, and top-quality Illinois steaks.
Donations from Birkey’s customers must be made on this web site, and are 100% tax deductible. By choosing your closest Birkey’s store below, you'll ensure that your money will go to the foodbank that serves that location.
NOTE: We are partnering with CROWDRISE to make credit card donations possible. After entering your information and before clicking "submit," CROWDRISE will ask for an optional processing fee, defaulted at 10%. Feel free to support this service or change the fee to 0%.
