WE DID IT!! Thank you to all of our generous donors!
With an overwhelming amount of support from our generous donors, the Shelbourne Community Kitchen reached our goal of raising $20,000 through the Double the Need Double the Donation Campaign! Staff contacted our anonymous donor who pledged to match the funds with the good news and if you can believe it- they challenged us to raise an additional $5,000 for them to match! With all the excitement, we successfully raised the additional $5,000. Now our $25,000 will officially be turned to $50,000! Wowzers!
On behalf of our members, staff and board of directors, we would like to send our heart-felt thanks to the incredibly generous anonymous donor who helped to make this exciting matching opportunity possible. We would also like to thank each and every one of our donors who helped us reach our goal of $25,000. We did it!
This incredible matching campaign could not have come at a better time as the need for our programs has more than doubled due to COVID, and we are in the final stages of reopening in our new, expanded facility. The funds raised through the Double the Need Double the Donation Campaign will help to provide fresh and healthy food for over 830 families and individuals. We are continually humbled by the support we receive. Without our incredible donors, our work would not be possible.
