This holiday season we invite you to take the Hunger Stops Here Challenge and help us provide $12,000 or 3,000 nutritious meals to hungry people across Washington state.
Here are some of the statistics:
• 1 in 8 Washingtonians live below the poverty line
• 1 in 6 will visit a food bank this year to get groceries to feed themselves or their family.
• 1 in 5 kids live in a household that struggles to put food on the table.
• Washington state ranks 10th in the country in overall wealth – and ranks 34th in food insecurity.
Your gift makes a significant difference to a child, a senior, or a neighbor who is facing the thought of not having enough to eat. Your gift allows a child to focus on learning, not on wondering where their next meal will come from. Give between now and October 31st and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar and will make twice the impact! Donations are doubled!
