Last year, CenturyLink hosted a matching donation fund food drive to raise fund$ and awareness for community food banks/pantries in their markets. In 2016, thanks to your collective generosity we were able to raise $19,000 which was matched, and then some, by CenturyLink for a total check of $48,000. Our goal for 2017 is to raise $25,000. We were a leader in our tristate area as well! We are hopeful that we can gather similar support and reap the matching rewards from CenturyLink.
CenturyLink has identified nearly 150 food banks nationally and specifically recognized Project SHARE to include in their 2017 drive. Project SHARE is unique in the Harrisburg-Carlisle region!
The CenturyLink Backpack Buddies Food Drive will take place June 5-16. This will be an online virtual “food” drive with a single website to process all monetary donations. The URL for the site is www.centurylink.com/fooddrive. Donors will be able to visit the site, choose Project SHARE as their beneficiary and make a financial donation via credit card or PayPal. Please note that the site will close at 11 p.m. on Friday, June 16.
We will also provide a link to that site from our website beginning on June 5th.
If you support the mission of Project SHARE and see how we are working tirelessly everyday to SHARE in our community please take this special moment to make a donation when this amazing matching fund is being held!
