The Marcus Harris Foundation Launches #35for35 Drive
New fundraising initiative designed to combat food insecurity
By: The Marcus Harris Foundation
About The #35for35 Drive
According to the hunger relief organization Feeding America, at least 35 million people nationwide are currently struggling with food insecurity. That number is likely to increase in the coming weeks and months, due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19.
In recognition and support of the 35 million Americans battling food insecurity daily, The MHF has launched a new #35for35 fundraising drive. Through the drive, in the next 35 days the charitable nonprofit organization aims to raise $3500 in grocery store eGift cards, all of which will be used to purchase the fresh meats, produce, and non-perishable foods delivered each week through Neighborfood Express, its newest program that provides free groceries and supplies each week to families living in food insecure neighborhoods.
Donating a grocery store eGift card is safe and easy and can be done from the convenience of a phone or computer. No amount is too small, and all eGift card donations count as tax deductible in-kind contributions.
