This pledge closed about 1 month ago
The US Department of Agriculture estimates that on a low-cost meal plan you can feed one 4-5 year old child for a week for only $30.90.* Recently, both of Trehab's two food banks in Susquehanna County have seen an increase in need, with Montrose in particular witnessing a rise in families with children.
Currently, the two locations assist nearly 500 households a month. At the same time, however, the agency has experienced a reduction in funding for this valuable resource.
This is a sharp discrepancy- increased need with reduced funds.
We are asking for your help. Will you pledge to donate either food or funds?
Our goal is to raise $3,090, or its equivalent in food. This represents enough to feed 100 children at USDA's estimated weekly rate. (Note: Funds will be used for general food bank support, not reserved just for children.)
What are you pledging? Each pledge represents a commitment to donate food or funds toward our goal.
If you do not have Facebook and/or would rather donate money, you can give through our website at: www.trehab.org. Select "food bank" from the "donation type" menu.
Thank you for helping us help those in need in Susquehanna County!
