Online fundraiser for Merrimack Valley Food Bank
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Merrimack Valley Food Bank, Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Danielle McFadden is holding a Thanksgiving fundraiser for the organization over Facebook.
The fundraiser has a goal of raising $ 30,000 to honor the food bank’s 30 years of service. Last year, the fundraiser raised $26,410, and it has raised a total of $65,150 over the past four years.
McFadden said on Facebook that a $25 donation provides a traditional Thanksgiving meal for a local family or 75 meals for families to help them through the winter; a $50 donation provides a monthly grocery delivery of 30 meals to a homebound senior or a bag of food for 10 children to get through the weekend; and $100 provides 300 meals.
One hundred percent of every donation goes directly to the food bank.
