November 30 is Giving FoodsDay! Support Children Through Operation Backpack
On Nov. 30, you can give nourishment and hope to the 1 in 4 children now at risk of hunger in the bistate region. Support one of Operation Food Search’s signature programs, Operation Backpack, which provides weekend food assistance to thousands of kids. Our goal is to provide more than 680,000 meals through this program in the next year!
Once again this year. . . we have a generous donor, ELCO Chevrolet and Cadillac, who is matching up to $15,000 in donations! Help us meet our goal of $40,000 in honor of our 40th anniversary by donating to reach $25,000 to be combined with $15,000 from ELCO.
3 Ways You Can Get Involved on Nov. 30:
#1. Sponsor 20 backpack meals for just $25.
#2. Share our crowdfunding page with family and friends (more information to come).
#3. Post an unselfie telling your friends why you support us. (An unselfie is just like a selfie, but with a generous twist. Take a photo of yourself holding a sign that tells your followers who you’re supporting for #GivingTuesday and #GivingFoodsDay.)
These awesome initiatives to support children at risk of hunger will be launched closer to Nov. 30. Stay in the loop on all the exciting happenings at OFS by keeping tabs on our Facebook page. Following us is a great way to spread the word and help us in our mission to heal hunger!
