Extra Meals

Good news everyone...

The funds have ALL come in for the September event! Thank you all so much. The majority of you came through this year much more than you ever have, and I really loved seeing everyone pitching in.

And also - a BIG, GIANT thank-you to Elrod's and Foodland Markets for doing their dollar drive. Once again, we couldn't have done it without them.

We did, however, pack more meals than we set out to pack. We have covered the cost of the 150,000 meals that we committed to, but at the event we just got going and beat our goal by more than 5,000 meals.

The 5,736 meals that we packed over and above our goal cost $1,376.64. We are not obligated to cover the cost of these meals as well, but obviously it helps the organization if we do. Please consider digging deep (once again) and donating. The same instructions apply ("Donation Information" link at left); donations will be accepted toward our event (#1109-99) until December 3.

And after that, if you still want to continue to feed hungry children, FMSC always welcomes your help!

Thanks again, folks!
