Wednesday, 8 a.m. We are overwhelmed at the generosity of our fabulous community. Our #GivingTuesday goal was to raise $30,000 in two days and we did that--and more. In fact, our preliminary total is $41,023. (The final total will be posted next week after we get the reports from Facebook Fundraisers that also raised funds to support us.) Thank you for ACTING to make a lasting impact of children and families. Your gifts mean that we can help more children get the nutrition they need, more families keep their utilities on, and more parents pay their rent so they can stay in their homes.

Tuesday, 9:15 p.m. We can’t wait to share our latest numbers with you! We met our stretch goal! Thanks to many generous gifts, we reached our $33,500 benchmark and went way above it. We’ve now raised $38,388. We get to add the $2,000 challenge grant from Terrie and Bob Smith which bring us to $40,388. And, it’s not too late to give! We’ve still got a couple of hours left in #GivingTuesday. ACT now to make an impact.

Tuesday, 7 p.m. We’re well on our way to reaching our stretch goal. Right now, we’re at $32,381. That means we’ve completed our Food-O-Meter. Remember that we’ve been given a challenge by Terrie and Bob Smith. If we can reach $33,500 by the end of the night, they will put in $2,000 more. That’s just $1,219 away from where we are now. We can do it! Please share this with others so we can finish strong and unlock our last challenge.

Tuesday, 3:30 p.m. We did it again! We needed to reach $28,000 and thanks to your generosity we’ve now raised $28,359. This means we get to unlock the $1500 challenge grant provided by Vicki Jacobsen Klump and Gerry Klump as well as an anonymous donor. This brings our total to $29,859. Wow! We’re almost there! And we’ve been given another challenge - to take us above and beyond our goal so that we can raise even more funds to support families and children in our community. If we can get to $33,500 by the end of tonight, we will complete our Food-O-Meter and we can unlock a $2,000 challenge grant from Terrie and Bob Smith. Things tend to slow down in the afternoon so help us keep up our energy to reach our stretch goal and unlock another challenge!

Tuesday, 12:30 p.m., We achieved our goal ahead of schedule. We reached $23,002 which means we were able to unlock the $2,500 challenge grant from Integral Building Systems. This brings our new total to $25,502. Our Food-O-Meter is growing! And we have another challenge to announce. If we can reach $28,000 by 3 p.m., we can unlock at a $1,500 challenge grant. This includes $1,000 from Vicki Jacobsen Klump and Gerry Klump as well as $500 from an anonymous donor.

Tuesday, 10 a.m - Our challenge was to reach $17,000. Our calculations show we made it to $19,053! That means we unlocked the $1200 challenge from board members Craig Keleher, Susannah Gustafon and Todd Smith, bringing our new total to $20,253. We added two more wedges to our Food-O-Meter also! And we're announcing our next challenge grant. Integral Building Systems has said if we can reach $23,000 by 1 p.m. today, they will put in another $2500! Let's do it!

Monday, 9:00pm - We did it! In fact, we went above and beyond our goal of $12,000. We unlocked the challenge grant from Brian and Julia Hornung and have now brought our total to $15,175. That means we are half way to our goal of $30,000. Look at all these wedges of healthy food we've added to our Food-O-Meter!

Our next challenge grant starts now and will get us going strong tomorrow. If we can reach $17,000 by 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning, we can unlock a $1200 grant from MOM Board members Todd Smith, Susannah Gustafson and Craig Keleher. 

Monday, 3:30 p.m. We met our second challenge grant, and now are at a total of $11,014!  If we can get to $12,000 by the end of today, we will receive an additional $1,000, thanks to Brian and Julie Hornung


Monday, 12:20pm:  We are excited to announce that we've met our first challenge grant, putting our total at $7,538. We have a new challenge grant.  If we can get to $9,500 by 3pm, we will unlock an additional $1,200 Challenge Grant, given by the Mavroulis Family.


Monday, 7:00am - Are you ready? We’re so excited for #GivingTuesday that we’re launching it right now! And thanks to a generous $1,000 gift from Terry and Bob Smith, we already have the first wedge in our Food-O-Meter. But there’s more! Terry and Bob Smith have also provided a challenge grant. If we can raise $2000 more by 1 p.m., we unlock a challenge grant of $2,000. So ACT now to make a gift and change the future for families in our community. Then share this on your Facebook page to challenge your friends to do the same. 

For many people, the holiday season is a time of food: turkey, homemade rolls and decorated cookies. But for some families right here in our community, the holiday season could be a time of hunger. When we ACT together, we can change this.

Join MOM and people across the country this year on November 26 and 27 to celebrate #GivingTuesday, a national social media-driven event to raise money for good causes. Follow along right here and on our Facebook page as we try to raise $30,000 in two days to ensure families are able to stay in their homes and get the nutrition they need to stay healthy. Make a gift and then share our message with others through social media and email, challenging them to do the same. As you do, you can watch our Food-O-Meter grow!

#GivingTuesday. A moment of action. A lifetime of change.
