Virtual Food & Fund Drive: A New Way to Make a Big Difference

August 27, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Second Harvest Heartland Food & Fund Drives place the power to make a meaningful difference in the fight against hunger directly in your hands. And with the launch of our new Virtual Food & Fund Drive tool in September, you’ll be able to make a huge impact on the communities we serve in just a few clicks!

Our secure Virtual Food & Fund Drive website allows you to select foods of certain cash values and add them to a shopping cart. Once your cart is full, you will then proceed to the virtual checkout and pay with a credit card. It’s that easy, and it’s just like shopping online. A tax receipt is generated immediately upon purchase.

It’s safe, simple and fun…and you can help feed hungry people in your community right from your computer.

There are advantages to donating via the Virtual Food & Fund Drive over a traditional Food & Fund Drive:

  • The Virtual Food & Fund Drive allows us to lower our costs because there are no transportation costs or volunteer hours needed.
  • The donations can purchase foods that traditional food drives don’t acquire, such as perishable items like fresh produce, meats and breads.
  • The virtual food drive is easy and fun to use! It’s just like shopping online and you’ll immediately know how many meals your donation has helped to provide.

For every $10 donated, Second Harvest Heartland can distribute 37 meals for the children, seniors and working families in need in our community.

Stay tuned for information on how to set up your own Virtual Food & Fund Drive!
