vCom was able to reach its goal of beating last year’s number of meals donated by 10%! For 2013, we aimed to donate $1311.92, which is an equivalent of 2,622 meals. We would like to thank all of you for being so generous and donating to the Contra Costa Food Bank and helping those in need. Your generosity will help the food bank provide nutritious meals to those who are less fortunate. Thank you for making this Thanksgiving a happy one for everyone we are able to help.
We started off this year’s food drive with the determination to meet and beat our 2012 goal, which was to donate $1192.66. I am happy to say that this year, our team donated a total of $1,567.61!!! For every dollar donated, the Food Bank distributes the equivalent of two nutritious, high-quality meals to hungry neighbors in our communities. Therefore the $1,567.61 donated through the virtual food drive equates to 3,135 meals.
Thank you to all of you for helping us achieve our goal and providing a Happy Thanksgiving meal to our community members.
