VEAP’s annual volunteer fundraising campaign, The DeBlieck Family Challenge, finished December 5 at 9 am and we are so pleased to share that we raised $92,805! Our 48 hour goal was ambitious– $100,000 to provide food for 600,000 meals and thanks to hundreds of donors, we can now distribute enough food to make 555,750 meals. Thank you so much! Shari has a special note for all the donors this year:
VEAP volunteers are dedicated, thoughtful, selfless, engaging, hardworking, and bighearted. Without them, VEAP would simply not be successful at providing basic needs to families in need. Gifts received through this challenge will impact so many individuals and families.
Your partnership and caring allows VEAP to live out its mission to create pathways to stronger, more hopeful communities through access to healthy food, housing stability and supportive services allowing people to dream about possibilities and the future. As we said last year, Kent and I are nothing but grateful for your generosity; thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting this organization we love, VEAP!
