JOIN THE FEINSTEIN CHALLENGE
The 2014 Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger is well underway and your help is needed for us to be successful. The Feinstein Foundation of Rhode Island offer $1 million to be divided among any and all organizations helping to feed needy families through food pantries, kitchens and other facilities.
To receive a grant from the Foundation all we need to do is report all of the money and food items collected during the months of March and April and based on our total we will receive a grant.
More importantly, all money and food collected stays right here in our area to be used to feed needy families.
If you would like to help or make a donation call 814-539-4627 or send a donation to SVDP Food For Families at 927 Franklin St. Johnstown, PA 15905. Please mark the memo line FEINSTEIN.
