Hear why End 68 Hours of Hunger is important
for your community
The Salem End 68 Hours of Hunger Program has been operating since May 2014. We are very grateful for all of the volunteers who are helping with food donations, shopping, funding, and getting the word out. The Salem High School Key Club packs bags each week and our program now serves fifty children. These enthusiastic volunteers faithfully show up without fail and fill the bins. Their help has been instrumental to the success of our program. Students from Kindness Matters at Salem High School have been volunteering to sort food along with Salem School District staff and retirees. These individuals have been a tremendous help.
We’ve recently had a few sizable donations!! Worldcom Exchange Inc of Salem held a two week food drive and collected over 17,000 shelf-stable items, and $1,725 was raised at a 5K organized by the Salem High School Blue Devils Boys Soccer Program. In addition, we have several monthly donors for whom we are truly appreciative. Please consider donating – it costs about $10 per week to send a weekend’s worth of food home with a child.
Thank you so much for your support!
