Semcac food shelves participate in Open Your Heart to the Hungry & Homeless


Fri, Jun 27th, 2014
Posted in All Business Announcements

All four of the Semcac food shelf locations are participating in 2014 Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless, a donation challenge sponsored by Hunger Solutions that takes place during the month of July. Semcac is a member of Hunger Solutions Minnesota, therefore is eligible to receive a percentage of grant funds designated for this challenge. The amount given to Semcac food shelves will depend upon the amount that is raised during this one month period. More donations mean more additional money can be earned through the challenge for these food shelves.

Semcac food shelves are located in Caledonia, Kasson, Preston and Rushford. In 2013, 1,460 households made 8,226 regular visits, plus 229 emergency visits, for a total of 8,455 visits to Semcac food shelves.

To donate, make checks payable to Semcac. Note Open Your Heart on the memo line or on an enclosed letter. Also, please designate the location of the food shelf you are donating to by noting the city or county. Bring to a food shelf location or mail to Semcac, PO Box 549, Rushford, MN 55971. If you would like to donate with a credit or debit card, please visit our GiveMN.org page at: http://givemn.razoo.com/story/semcac and note which food shelf you are donating to. Thank you for helping us end hunger in our communities!
