As part of the Wal-Mart “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, The Toledo Food Bank recently chose one agency per county to assist the bank with a voting challenge against 127 other food banks across the country. The top 50 food banks will receive a portion of $60,000 in grants made possible by the campaign.
If the Toledo Food Bank wins the challenge, they will give a $1500 credit at the food bank to each of the agencies that helped pull in votes.
Helping Hands Food Pantry is honored to be chosen and is asking everyone with a facebook account to lend their support. With a $1500 credit, the food pantry could buy a lot of food to help those in need close to home.
To show your support and vote for the Toledo Food Bank and aid Helping Hands Food Pantry, visit www.walmart.com/fighthunger. The site will work with smart phones and tablets and you will be able to search by organization, name, city, state, or zip code. Voters must have an active facebook account and be at least 13 years of age. Each voter will be allowed to cast one vote every day through October 5.
Helping Hands Food Pantry hopes you’ll participate and lend a hand by not only voting yourself, but also by sharing this information with all of your own facebook friends.
