SET UP YOUR MONTHLY GIFT

GIVE WITH A PAYROLL DEDUCTION

 

“While worldwide hunger is an issue, I think people tend to forget about the local need and don’t recognize it. A one time set-up is so easy, and your monthly contributions fill the need continuously, not only during the holidays.”

- Jackie Fabel, Monthly Giver

  3. Maximize your contribution. Your monthly tax-deductible contribution helps us put more dollars directly into food aid by cutting down on processing time and paperwork. 
  4. Plan for the future. Ongoing monthly gifts sustain our work and help plan for the future. It’s support we can depend on every month of the year, to ensure people have enough to eat.
