Press Release from the Hospitality House:
Be a part of fighting hunger in the High Country by taking the Feinstein Challenge now through April 30. For the fourth consecutive year, Hospitality House has partnered with the Alan Shawn Feinstein Foundation, who will divide $1 million among hunger-fighting organizations across America, to help those in need. Since 1991, over 2,000 agencies nationwide have used the Feinstein Challenge to raise over $1.25 billion, making it the most successful grassroots campaign to fight hunger in the United States.
At the conclusion of the Challenge, Hospitality House will receive a grant from the Feinstein Foundation based on the amount of funds & food raised between March 1 and April 30, 2012. All donations (cash, check, pledge, pledge, stock or food) made to Hospitality House that mention the Feinstein Challenge during this time will be counted.
“The Feinstein Challenge is a tremendous opportunity that couldn’t have come at a better time,” states Hospitality House Director of Development Todd Carter. “We are serving over 10,500 meals per month in our community kitchen and our food box program has seen an 82% increase over last year. Oh, and the challenge is so simple – the more folks give, the more we receive from Feinstein Foundation and boy do we need it.”
Take the Feinstein Challenge by donating online at www.hospitalityhouseofboone.org; mailing a check (noting Feinstein Challenge in memo line) to Hospitality House PO Box 309 Boone NC 28607 or bringing your cash, check or food (each item counts as $1) by the Hospitality House at 338 Brook Hollow Rd Boone NC.
