The Webster City Rotary Club recently made a $350 donation to the Enhance Hamilton County Food Pantry Challenge. Monies donated to the Food Pantry Challenge will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $12,000 with all donations going to support the six (6) food pantries located throughout Hamilton County. Since the middle of June, the Food Pantry Challenge has resulted in $10,580 being distributed to support area food pantries.
The EHCF received a donation of $10,000 by an anonymous donor to benefit the food pantries throughout Hamilton County. The donor indicated they would like to issue a challenge to the residents of the county to match their donation by the end of October 2020. As a result, the Foundation Board decided to add $2,000 to the donation and make the challenge to raise an additional $12,000 by the end of October.
To participate in this Food Pantry Challenge, send your check to: Darcy Swon, Enhance Hamilton County Foundation, 501 Bank Street, Suite 1, Webster City, IA 50595. Checks should be made out to the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation with the name of the food pantry to be supported listed in the memo line. If no food pantry is indicated, the donation will be split evenly among the local food pantries. Cash donations are also welcome. Donations will be distributed monthly to support the food pantries. Donations will be received up through Nov.1, 2020.
