Feinstein “Million-Dollar Challenge”

“If a man from Rhode Island is willing to help fight hunger in your community, won’t you please consider donating?”

The Rhode Island philanthropist, Alan Shawn Feinstein, will add money to monetary or food donations given to the Community Food Bank between March 1 and April 30.

For the tenth year in a row, Feinstein will divide $1 million nationwide among agencies involved in the fight against hunger that use it to help them raise funds during March and April 2007.

Every anti-hunger organization in the U.S. can earn a share of the $1 million – up to $50,000. Each dollar collected is worth $1, and each pound of food collected is also worth $1 in this annual challenge to fight hunger.
