Donate Nov. 30 on #GivingTuesday
Share’s Backpack program provides nutritious food to hundreds of families each week and we need your help to keep the program fully-funded.
Rising food costs and delays in the food delivery supply chain continue to impact the household budgets of thousands in our community. And those factors, combined with lost funding sources, have impacted our Backpack program’s budget, too.
You can help with a donation on November 30—and your donation will be matched up to $30,000 thanks to an anonymous donor.
Our Backpack program goes beyond just bags of food. Weekly distribution includes 600-650 bags of non-perishable food to 63 schools, 500 kid-friendly food boxes to 33 schools and 35 ‘hotel’ bags that are made up of foods that do not require a can opener or a kitchen to prepare. On top of that, once per month, our 12 local food pantries are available with fresh produce, dairy, eggs and bread. Annually, the program provides 525,000+ pounds of food.
Follow us on facebook.com/ShareVancouver and Instagram (@sharevanwa) where our #GivingTuesday campaign will share favorite meals made by program participants. Please consider a donation and share our posts with friends, family members and co-workers to encourage them to donate, too!
