DISASTER RELIEF HELP NEEDED!

By now, you've probably seen photos and video footage of Hurricane Michael's devastating aftermath across the Big Bend and Panhandle regions. In consideration of the hurricane's widespread impact, Bank of America has allowed us to begin collecting online donations for our food distribution operations at bankofamerica.com/give  through its annual 2-to-1 donation match fundraiser. The funds raised through the Give A Meal campaign will help Second Harvest provide disaster relief supplies and assist those struggling with food insecurity in the months to come. 

This fundraiser is an opportunity for you to TRIPLE the impact of your donation. For every $1 donated online, Bank of America will match it with an additional $2. This means if you give $50, Bank of America will make it $150 (enough for 1,650 meals). 

Donors do NOT have to be a Bank of America customer.    

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS TO DONATE FOR THE MATCH:

  1. Visit bankofamerica.com/give
  2. Enter your zip code when prompted (e.g., "32310").  Entering a local zip code will ensure that Second Harvest will receive your donation.
  3. Enter the amount of your gift.
  4. Make sure to select "Local" when prompted for your gift designation.
  5. Fill out your billing and payment information, and select "Submit".
  6. Then, please email MaryDekle@FightingHunger.com  with the amount of your contribution, so we can keep a running total.

Bank of America will provide a maximum of $50,000 to match all of these online donations, but to receive that full amount, we MUST raise a full $25,000 from you and others who want to help provide food, water and other disaster relief supplies to those in need across the Big Bend. We're very thankful to Bank of America for this matching opportunity, but it now falls upon the rest of us to take advantage of it.  

For the past two years, donors like you allowed Second Harvest to raise the full match, which has had a significant impact on our ability to help those in need.

Please contribute $100, $50, $25 or as much as you feel you can , and forward this message to your friends and family, asking them to do the same. 

Thank you for your help. Working together, we can have a greater impact on helping our neighbors in need.

With a grateful heart,

Rick Minor, CEO
