Your gift can help Interfaith Pantry to share the $1 million

The Interfaith Community Pantry has received notice that for the 16th straight year, the Alan Shawn Feinstein Foundation in Rhode Island will divide $1 million among nonprofit agencies throughout the country helping to fight hunger during March and April 2013.

The more donations we receive (food and monetary) the more Feinstein money we get. Your donation toward this campaign makes you partners in the most successful campaign to fight hunger of all times.

Only cash, checks or food item donations received from March 1 to April 30, 2013, will be used for the Feinstein challenge.

Feinstein’s past $1 Million challenges to fight hunger have raised a record $1.5 billion for hungerfighting agencies nationwide helping the needy.

All donors wishing to participate in the challenge please send checks or bring food to: The Interfaith Community Pantry, 301 Cumberland St., Cumberland, MD 21502.

Thank you for your prayers, support and donations. Without your involvement we would not be able to provide assistance for those in our community who need emergency food.

Dick Puderbaugh

Assistant pantry manager
