Help me honor Connie by decreasing food insecurity in Northern Illinois

My daughter Liz, my grandchildren and son-in-law Ryan, and I will be walking the Food 5K as "Connie's Squad for Social Change" with donations going to Northern Illinois Food Bank. Connie and I volunteered for Potluck in the Park in Portland, and I feel like walking this first walk after her passing will honor the good deeds and compassion that Connie symbolizes and embodied. There is a MATCHING CHALLENGE going on right now - which doubles donations through Apr 21. Thank you for supporting this important cause in our human community.

Please join me in the fight against hunger in our community!  

Did you know that Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food and other essential items to more than half a million people every year? That’s why I’ve committed myself to raise funds that will help provide for these precious families by participating in this year’s Foodie 5K fun run/walk. Last year’s event was a rewarding experience and great success. Thanks to everyone's support the Food Bank was able to provide the equivalent of $1.8 million worth of groceries for families in need. This year the goal is $2 million worth of groceries!

Please join me in making a difference in the lives of the thousands of people in Northern Illinois who are hungry. The funds I raise will stay right here, in our backyard, and will fill an empty plate of a hungry neighbor.  

Did you know that every $1 donated helps provide $8 worth of groceries?  

$20 helps provides a monthly food box to a senior who is unable to visit a food pantry.

$30 helps provide $240 of groceries to a family in need.

$60 helps provide food-filled backpacks to six hungry children with enough food for the entire weekend

Please join me at the Foodie 5K or support my efforts with a donation that will build hope for a family in our community! Every donation makes a difference.  

 

Thanks in advance!
