Barely half way into our 30th Anniversary Year, St. Johns Food Share made history. Our first community-based fundraiser raised $14,470 from members, individuals, businesses and faith-based organizations. This Bridging The Gap campaign engaged dozens of Food Share members working together to raise funds in person, by phone, on foot and online. We exceeded our goal of $10,000, and that’s not all…
In December, 2017, the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund (MCMF) awarded St. Johns Food Share a $30,000 grant if we could match that amount through individual donations and grant awards of $250 to $2,500 each. We are excited to announce success meeting the challenge!
It is with profound gratitude we recognize and thank donors who enabled St. Johns Food Share to achieve the $30,000 goal and earn the matching grant. Your generosity feeds our dream to achieve our FoodSmart nutrition education program, grow our capacity to secure new members and food donors, enhance our facility and fight hunger in our community. We could not have done it without the following generous givers:
Local businesses and organization major donors:
Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
Express Employment Professionals
Bethel Baptist Church
Oregonians Federal Credit Union
St. Johns Wesleyan Church
Individual Donors Giving $250 or more:
