Puritan Cleaners 100K Meals campaignMay 29, 2015 • WRIC 8 News
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — “Can you help us feed a hungry child?”
8News has partnered up with Puritan Cleaners for the 100,000 Meals campaign.
During this two week campaign we hope to raise more than 100,000 meals for those in need in central Virginia.
People are encouraged to donate foods like peanut butter, tuna fish, rice, canned vegetables, etc. Donating money is also an option.
The food donated is immediately turned in, checked for date and quality and put into boxes and given to those in need at local food and pantries, churches and others who are in need.
The money donated allows FeedMore to purchase vegetables, meats, and other necessities to make full meals.
“What if you were hungry?” Wouldn’t you want someone to make that donation so that you knew where your next meal was coming from?
If you want to donate to the 100,000 Meals campaign, you can drop off food or funds at any area Puritan Cleaners location.
Remember a $5 donation can provide up to 25 nutritious meals.
