April is Hunger Action Month in the Valley
THANK YOU to all those who joined us for our Open House to kick off Hunger Action Month!
And our appreciation to KMIR, KESQ, and our Telethon Media Partner, CBS Local 2, for sharing coverage of our Open House.
Speaking of our partner CBS-Local 2, they hosted our 3rd Annual End-Hunger Telethon Friday, April 5 -- THANK YOU to everyone who called to help feed our hungry neighbors!
CBS-2 personality Brooke Beare hosted from the FIND warehouse in Indio, as hundreds volunteered during the event, and Kris Long hosted from the phone bank generously hosted by Agua Caliente Casino & Spa in Rancho Mirage as our guest phone-bankers took calls from hundreds over the 6 broadcast hours.
We raised both much needed funds AND awareness about hunger and food insecurity in the Coachella Valley.
Thank You for Joining Us!
How to Help in March & April!
The Feinstein Challenge offers FIND Donors a way to put their dollars to even greater good this spring. All donations FIND receives March 1 to April 30, 2013, help FIND earn our share of a $1,000,000 challenge grant offered by the Feinstein Foundation’s 16th annual fight against hunger across the country.
The size of the grant FIND Food Bank can earn from the Feinstein Challenge (between $250 and $35,000!) is determined by the amount of donations we raise March 1 to April 30, so please consider making your gift count toward the Challenge!
