Roberts Oxygen & Schattner Foundation Challenge Extended
Thanks to many of you, we reached our goal of raising $100,000, all of which will be now matched dollar for dollar by Roberts Oxygen and Employees. We are once again humbled by the compassion of our community, especially now that we have learned that the Robert I. Schattner Foundation is stepping up to extend the Matching Gift Challenge by $50,000. How fortunate are we!
We are so grateful to Roberts Oxygen for starting something amazing, and to the Schattner Foundation for “taking the baton” even further. We know caring givers like you will help us finish this race.
With many Montgomery County families already food insecure before the pandemic, a staggering 95,000+ of our neighbors are struggling to put nutritious food on the table.
In response, our County and Greater Washington Community Foundation have launched FOOD FOR MONTGOMERY, a public-private initiative working to address the alarming spike in food insecurity due to COVID-19.
From all of us at Manna Food Center and FOOD FOR MONTGOMERY, thank you in advance for helping to fight hunger in these unprecedented times. To give to the extended Challenge, please CLICK HERE!
