Douglas M. Woods $10,000 “Challenge Hunger” Gift to Benefit the DMARC Food Pantry Network
Local philanthropist Douglas M. Woods has committed to provide 50 cents for every dollar donated to the DMARC Food Pantry Network during March and April 2013, up to the first $20,000 in donations.
This challenge gift comes during a season when donations to the food pantry are historically low. Yet, the need for food assistance by families who struggle to make ends meet continues year-round.
How can you help? During March and April, donations to the DMARC Food Pantry Network that are noted as “Challenge Hunger” gifts will be matched 50 cents for every dollar, up to a total of $20,000 given. As part of the Challenge, your $10 becomes $15, $50 equals $75, and so on. During the Challenge, a $10 gift will help DMARC provide a week’s worth of meals for a hungry child.
