Louisville Champions Fundraising Effort to Benefit Local Food Pantry
During the recent Battle of the Branches, MH vs. Hunger, the team in Louisville took a different approach to make the most of their donations. Donna Petty, Service Coordinator, championed a fundraising effort for Dare to Care Food Bank. Because of their purchasing power, Dare to Care was able to turn every quarter donated into a dollars worth of food!
In addition to providing food to hundreds of emergency kitchens, shelters and food pantries, Dare to Care operates several programs targeting the most vulnerable in the community. Last year Dare to Care distributed food for 13 million meals to those in need in the 13 county Kentuckiana service area.
In addition to the 200 food items donated, the Louisville branch also contributed $810.00 dollars, or $3240.00 “Dare to Care dollars”.
Joe Bradley, Construction Rental Manager said “We really feel we got more bang for the buck that way! Under the tremendous leadership of the amazing Ms. Petty, we feel that indeed we pulled together to support a very worthy cause and made a difference.”
Great job, Louisville!
