|Nissan and Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee have partnered to "double your impact" during the first two weeks of December. For every dollar donated to Second Harvest, Nissan will match the donation up to $100,000, enabling the organization to provide eight meals for each dollar donated Dec. 3 – 15.
"More than one million Tennesseans are struggling to put food on the table every day," said Jaynee Day, President and CEO of Second Harvest. "Demand for our services continues to grow and we are working hard to ensure that we can meet the needs of our community. We are grateful for Nissan's continued support of our mission and we hope the community will participate and give generously over the next few weeks."
All funds raised during the campaign will aid the Food Bank in its efforts to raise 10 million meals this holiday season. To date, the campaign has raised nearly 2 million meals. The Feeding Hope Challenge provides funding for Second Harvest's feeding programs and food resources for emergency food assistance programs in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee.
To participate, simply make a financial contribution between Dec. 3-15 at www.secondharvestmidtn.org.
