FamilyWorks’ campaign to raise $3,000 for the new Greenwood Food Resource Center is about halfway to its goal, with two weeks left to go in Hunger Action Month.
The food bank is housed at the Salvation Army, at 9501 Greenwood Ave. N. It opened in April to help fill the gap when Volunteers of America’s Greenwood Food Bank closed.
So far, FamilyWorks, based in Wallingford but supporting projects in numerous neighborhoods, has raised $1,428. They’re hoping to raise $3,000, which will be matched by FamilyWorks Board Members and local businesses.
Chuck’s Hop Shop in Greenwood has donated a T-shirt, growler and one growler draft fill in support of the fundraising campaign. Anyone who donates to GFRC through the end of September will be entered into a drawing to win.
