Giving Tuesday is on December 1, and to celebrate, our generous friends at Delta Dental Community Care Foundation are matching gifts right now (up to $25,000), providing twice the help for families struggling to put food on the table. Since every $1 you give creates $8.03 worth of goods and services, just imagine the impact you can make when you give a gift that is doubled today! It means your donation of $20 could help provide meals for a family of four for two weeks!
There are so many families here in Utah feeling the pain of food insecurity right now. As families try to recover from historic unemployment, our neighbors are looking for help in staggering numbers. Worried parents, children, and seniors are in crisis — and need a place to turn for immediate relief. At one Utah County mobile pantry site this past week, we had 90 cars parked overnight to save their spot in line for the start of the distribution in the morning. We served 1,000 cars that day at just that site. We are continually breaking records across the state for the number of Utahns we are serving. Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good.
With your help, we will continue to meet this ongoing need. Together we have the power to transform communities and bring help and hope to those who desperately need it. So please give now before this match ends. Your doubled gift can feed neighbors in need — and show them that kindness is stronger than any crisis.
