We asked our supporters on May 2, 2012, to GiveBIG for KIDS and the results are staggering... nearly $22,000 was donated in only one day! Thank you for helping Food Lifeline address the issue of child hunger in our community.
Research shows that school age kids who do not have access to a filling breakfast or who go to bed hungry, have a difficult time focusing and learning in class. Without enough nutritious food, their cognitive abilities deteriorate, leading to poor performance on tests and other schoolwork.
Your donations to Food Lifeline through GiveBIG for KIDS will receive a partial match thanks to the generous Seattle Foundation GiveBIG sponsors. This means nutritious meals for more than 70,000 children in our community. Thank you to everyone to helped make this day of giving a success!
