THE FRUITMOBILE IS ALMOST HERE….But we need YOUR help!
We are pleased as over-ripe persimmons to be able to announce that The Plum Foundation has offered us a $5000 matching grant to help us purchase our long-needed, desperately sought FRUITMOBILE – a vehicle to help us carry our harvested fruit and tools to the various pantries we serve across Southern California.
OK, so this artist’s rendering may NOT be to scale, or even close to the cherry vehicle we will be purchasing, but you gotta admit, it IS cute.
Joking aside – as a matching grant WE NEED TO MATCH the $5000 by the end of this month. This is where you come in… As our volunteers, friends, family, fruit donors and partners of all sorts WE ARE COMING TO YOU TO HELP RAISE THIS MODEST BUT IMPORTANT SUM IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS.
Whether it is $5 or the full $5000, every cent you donate now via PayPal by clicking on the “Make a Donation” button below, or by sending us a check is FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE and will go to making the FRUITMOBILE a reality:
If you would prefer to donate via a check, please make the check payable to: Food Forward and write “Matching Grant” in the memo line.
If you are considering any end of year giving we hope you will make Food Forward part of your plan – starting right here and now with a donation which is worth DOUBLE to us only for the next 30 days.
We thank you in advance and promise ALL donations over $500 a free orange sherbet cone as you accompany us on ride in the FRUITMOBILE ! How can you beat that?!
Thanks in advance for your generosity and for helping us now MEET THIS MATCH!
