Message from Ellen Cohen:
I have been very lucky and fortunate in life. As I turn 60, I didn’t want gifts or more “stuff”, instead, I wanted to highlight an organization that I admire and help further their mission. Because of this, I have decided to match every dollar we raise through this fundraiser.
I spent 3 years (1993-96) as a Special Events Coordinator/fund raiser for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, raising over $300,000 per year to help hungry people in need.
Since that time, I have volunteered sorting and packing food in the Food Bank warehouse, and donating to their campaigns.
Throughout the pandemic my husband Seth has worked with the Capital District Area Labor Federation, Catholic Charities, and the Food Bank on Food Distribution events serving hungry and disadvantaged families in our region.
For every dollar donated, the Food Bank distributes $10 worth of food, the equivalent of four meals. So, a $10 donation will allow them to distribute $100 worth of food, or forty meals!
Individual monetary contributions enable the Food Bank to do so much. It is much better than individual or group food drives because they use monetary contributions to purchase food in quantity that might not get donated, enabling them to provide nutritious, balanced meals to their member agencies.
Ellen will be matching all donations raised for this Fundraiser!
