Welcome to Sunshine Pantry!
ATTENTION: NOW IS THE TIME TO DONATE TO US!
For the 17th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein is helping non profit hunger fighting agencies nationwide raise funds this March and April by dividing $1 million among all participating agencies. The more donations made to us (from March 1st to April 30th) the more of the Feinstein Challenge money we will get! We can raise a minimum of $250 and a maximum of $35,000. In the past years, many agencies have increased their usual donations this time of year by two or three by using the Feinstein Challenge.
Feinstein's past annual spring $1 million challenges to fight hunger have raised over $2.0 Billion for over 1800 agencies and houses of worship nationwide helping those in need. YOUR donation toward this campaign makes you partners in the most successful ongoing grassroots effort EVER to fight hunger.
Donations can include cash, checks, and food items (valued at $1.00 per item or pound) or pledges, as long as they are obtained from the use of this challenge.
Thanks for the support! Please spread the word.
