BENEFITING: Forgotten Harvest
We’re adding a new teammate to the Forgotten Harvest Fleet! This new truck will help us rescue more food – that would otherwise go to waste – and deliver it to good people who would otherwise go hungry. Forgotten Harvest received a generous donation from RoseAnn and Robert Comstock toward the purchase of this new truck. But we still need to raise an additional $35,000 – so we need your help!
Everyone who donates or raises $250 will get his or her name on the new Forgotten Harvest Community Truck! Our fans and friends are the driving force for us to help those in need. We’re asking you to make a difference and join our mission to grow.
If you have any questions, would like to make a pledge, or need any help with your fundraiser, please contact Rebecca Gade-Sawicki at (248) 864-7527 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
