Our friends at Wolf Eye Center are helping us this month with a Food Drive from October 8th-13th! Bring 5 non perishable food or hygiene items and receive a $10 Wolf Eye Center Gift Card and a Wolf Eye Center Shopping bag!
Pick Click Give has been an amazing program for us over the years. Food drives help us acheive our goal of feeding the community, but actual money keeps the lights on. Many times, people assume that food is the only thing we need here at Mat-Su Food Bank. The truth is, we greatly accept donations in the form of cash as well in may ways, including becoming a monthly donor, our fundraiser Hearts for Hunger coming up in February, and through PFDs as people participate in Pick Click Give. It only takes a moment to add us and we appreciate everyone that included us on this year’s PFD application.
If you are unfamiliar with this process, each year during your application process , you can support non profits throughout the great state of Alaska. By simply following the steps of the attached image, one can help support the Mat-Su Food bank through monetary donation, taken out of their PFD. We look forward to a great 2018, 2019, and beyond with your amazing support!
