Emily Food Shelf Requests Your Help in July
Web posted July 27, 2021
While children are out of school for the summer, many families struggle to increase their food budgets to keep food on the table. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, households continue to experience significant economic hardship in the aftermath of high unemployment, distance learning, and business closures. That is why Emily Food Shelf is here and continuing to meet the increased need in our community. To help us ensure our community members have the food resources they need, we are participating in the Open Your Heart (OYH) Summer Challenge. Open Your Heart helps fund solutions to end hunger and homelessness in Minnesota.
As we take part in the OYH challenge during the month of July, the funds we raise will be proportionately matched up to $4,000 based on how much each participating food shelf raises. Will you help us rise to the challenge? Every $1 you give stays here in our local communities.
Please consider making a financial contribution to the Emily Food Shelf during the month of July and help those who rely on us to meet their daily food needs. Your contribution of any amount will have a significant impact on our efforts to fight hunger in our community by leveraging proportionally matched dollars from OYH.
The Emily Food Shelf serves the City of Emily and surrounding communities of Fifty Lakes, Outing, Little Pine, Ross Lake, Fairfield and Perry Lake.
