A BIG thank you to everyone who donated to The Aliveness Project Food Shelf in July! Thanks to your support, we were able to raise $5,282 and $5,000 will be matched by Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless. It truly took a community to help us surpass our goal. We’re grateful for:
- A successful summer food drive at the Wedge Community Co-Op that brought in $1,170.49 and 1,292 pounds of food
- The Nicollet Block Party and Five Watt Coffee hosting a dunk tank that raised $270
- And many donors who gave online or mailed checks to Aliveness.
The funds raised will provide groceries to people living with HIV that they can use to make nutritious meals at home.
Every day, Minnesotans make over 9,000 visits to food shelves statewide – that is six visits to a food shelf every minute. Food shelves are now part of many families’ ongoing strategies to supplement monthly food shortfalls. Since increasing numbers of people rely on food support on a regular basis, The Aliveness Project Food Shelf is proud to offer choices that encourage individuals living with HIV to lead healthy, self-directed lives.
