The 332% Challenge
Care for Real is facing a 332% increase in first-time pantry visits. More neighbors are experiencing food insecurity for the first time. When one couple who have supported Care for Real for more than 20 years learned about the surge in need, they we were inspired to act.
“The number – 332% – really got our attention. Care for Real’s incredible staff and volunteers deliver vital neighborhood support on the slimmest of resources. In today’s environment, they need more dollars than ever just to keep up.”
Together, we set a $33,200 goal to help us care for more neighbors this summer. The couple will match the first $15,000 to double the impact of gifts from neighbors like you.
“We tried to dig deep with our cash commitment, and hope you’ll join us in helping Care for Real sustain their mission of service in Edgewater and Rogers Park.”
The challenge starts NOW! We need your support today. Double your impact and give now.
