WCVB 5th Annual Day of Giving

Published on September 22, 2023

A special thank you to our official media partner, WCVB, for their continued partnership on our Annual Day of Giving. Thanks to this important collaboration, the volunteers who staffed the phones, and all the individual and corporate donations, our 5th Annual WCVB Day of Giving fundraising event was our most successful to date. 

Thanks to all of you, we were able to provide nearly 600,000 nutritious meals to our neighbors in need. Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to learn more about our mission to #EndHungerHere and thank you to those who graciously donated to feed our neighbors.
