The numbers are frightening: One out of five New York families struggle to feed their children.
Join us in fighting back. Join now and join fast.
Right now, thanks to time-sensitive matching contribution offers, we can make your donation to fight hunger go farther with our 2014 Feeding Our Neighbors campaign.
An anonymous donor just added a $6,000 dollar-for-dollar matching offer to the New York States Council Knights of Columbus Charities $1,000 dollar-for-dollar match. That means that this week, with your help, we will have at least $12,000 towards our goal of funding one million meals for hungry New Yorkers.
But you must act quickly. The Feeding Our Neighbors campaign that kicked off on January 26 ends this Sunday, February 2.
Feeding Our Neighbors is a united effort to fight hunger. Initially launched by Timothy Cardinal Dolan in 2011 and run for the past two years in partnership with UJA-Federation, it responds to Timothy Cardinal Dolan’s call that we all do our part to replenish the food pantries and soup kitchens in our community that so many rely on to survive.
