In an effort to fight hunger, the GRACE Food Pantry is participating in the Feinstein Challenge from March 1 – April 30. All donations (both monetary and food) received during this time will count towards a match grant from the The Feinstein Foundation, which means your donation will enable GRACE to feed twice as many with the funds raised.
The Feinstein Foundation is dedicated to the alleviation of hunger, the importance of community service in education and the values of caring, compassion and brotherhood. Founded in 1991 by Alan Shawn Feinstein, the foundation is running its 17th annual spring campaign to raise $1 million in the fight against hunger – an effort which GRACE is proud to be a part of.
