May 5, 2020 - Over the past 5 weeks, I've seen 142 food insecure families come to the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg's Food Pantry. I've personally packed and delivered just under 2,400 pounds of food, diapers, and formula. I've seen firsthand the uncertainty, challenges, and strain of Covid-19 on military families. Which is why I am asking for your help.
Today marks Giving Tuesday Now, a day of philanthropy to support organizations who are helping others during Covid-19. Usage of our Food Pantry is up 40% and while we are committed to ensure families receive the help they need - we need your support.
For all donations received on May 5th, we have a generous match of $1,000! That means the impact of your gift is DOUBLED!
If you would prefer to donate on a monthly basis, we would be appreciative of your sustained support! In fact, if you donate now - May 15th at $5 or more a month you will be automatically entered for a trip to Paris for Valentine's Day 2021! (Find all the rules and details at https://www.asymca.org/paris)
We realize that right now times are uncertain. We thank everyone who has given previously and for those who would like to support, but are just not able to at this time. Our commitment to serve and strengthen military families is stronger than ever.
Please donate online at https://give.asymca.org/campaign/fort-bragg-covid-19-emergency-fund/c283921. If you prefer to donate with cash or check, please email email@example.com or call 910-436-0500 X27.
Thank you for your support,
Associate Executive Director, Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg
