ROCK RIVER VALLEY PANTRY HOSTS GOFUNDME CAMPAIN BREAKFAST815
(ROCKFORD ILLINOIS, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020) The Rock River Valley Pantry (RRVP) announced today a new GoFundMe Campaign today called Breakfast815. The Campaign will start Sunday September 6, 2020 thru October 31st, 2020. All donations are 100% tax deductible, with all proceeds going to the Rock River Valley Pantry, Northern Illinois largest food pantry. With the support of our community we can reach the goal of $50,000 by the end of this Campaign.
As with many organizations in our area, Rock River Valley Pantry made the difficult decision and cancelled our traditional fall fundraising event, Round Up for Hunger. As such our fall 2020 fundraising effort will be a GoFundMe campaign themed Breakfast 815, focusing on the need to provide a nutritionally balanced breakfast for families in our community that find themselves in an unforeseen economic situation.
RRVP provides food items to thousands of individuals each month. Currently we operate two pantries, with both locations in economically depressed neighborhoods. As an emergency pantry we provide nutritious food that will meet the caloric needs of each family member for four days. In FY20 we had 63,000 user visits and distributed more than 1,500,000 pounds of food. A small staff and approximately 125 volunteers are responsible for the program’s success. We have been making a difference in the community for over 40 years.
The Rock River Valley Pantry is Northern Illinois largest Food Pantry. Support for Families who have urgent needs now can easily support this extremely important event.
