A Grass-Roots Campaign to Raise Funds to Support the Vital Work of the Northern Neck Food Bank
Why We Do the Campaign
We are a nonprofit organization that relies on financial contributions to accomplish our mission of providing nutritious supplemental food to over 8,700 people each month. The Northern Neck Food Bank is not a government agency; we rely upon the generosity of individuals and businesses in our community. Join the Northern Neck Food Bank in providing nutritional food for those in need in our region.
How it Works
The concept is simple. Individuals or any group of individuals are recruited and asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 through any legal means. This is a grass-roots community fundraising campaign, where the Food Bank Champion has the ability to involve his/her family, friends, employer/company and co-workers, church, school, civic club or professional organization to support his/her fundraising efforts.
Who are Northern Neck Food Bank Champions?
CHAMPIONS can be anyone! They just need to be asked. And they can be found everywhere: schools, scouting groups, high school clubs, colleges, sororities, fraternities, banks, credit unions, military spouse groups, civic groups, professional organizations, medical practices and hospitals, accounting and legal firms, retail and service stores, gas stations/convenience stores, local and national chain restaurants, police and fire departments, churches, senior clubs, manufacturing companies, insurance agencies, real estate companies, auto dealerships and more! Our Food Bank Champions will receive recognition in the local media, our website and Facebook page.
