Let's Fight Food Insecurity in our Community!
We’ve partnered with two amazing charities: Linn Benton Food Share and Marion Polk Food Share. They work tirelessly to end hunger in our region, and with your help, we can make a meaningful difference!
WE'LL DOUBLE YOUR DONATION!
From Monday, November 14th, 2022, to Friday, December 16th, 2022, we’re inviting our members, partners, affiliates, families and friends to donate to the cause. At the end of this “virtual” event, WVMLS will match total donations up to $20,000!!!*
It’s fast and easy to donate with GoFundMe, allowing you to make a huge impact with just a few clicks! Choose which community to feed (feel free to support BOTH!) and follow the onscreen prompts. Your donation receipt is provided by GoFundMe, with heartfelt thanks from your support team at WVMLS. DONATE NOW by clicking a food share icon below:
Why a Virtual Food Drive?
We found this option to be the most practical and cost-effective. With no transportation costs, volunteer hours, or logistical restrictions, we’re able to provide the maximum financial benefit to our charities while doing our part to keep our community healthy and safe. Additionally, financial support provides options traditional food drives don’t, such as allowing for the purchase of perishable items like fresh produce, dairy, and meat.
Matching Funds (*)
WVMLS Matching Funds: Donations received by Friday, December 16th, 2022, will be totaled and WVMLS will make a matching donation of up to $20,000. The resulting sum will be split evenly between the two charitable organizations.
Other Giving Options
Want to skip the online stuff and write a check instead? No problem! Checks payable to Marion Polk Food Share or Linn Benton Food Share can be mailed or delivered to WVMLS. All donations received at WVMLS by Friday, December 16th, 2022, will be eligible for WVMLS matching funds.
