How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
To all of you who donated through the Permanent Fund’s Pick.Click.Give in 2010,11,12, 13, 14, 15 and continuing to 2016, thank you for thinking of us! This is a wonderful way to contribute almost painlessly to your favorite charity or cause. We hope you share with us!
Funds received at the MatSu Food Bank, Food4Kids or the Food Pantry of Wasilla are carefully expended to provide the best use of funds. We buy as nutritional foods as possible and purchase at the best prices we can find. We use cooperative buying power when we can and purchase with local merchants. Your generous donations of food at our door and by your tax deductible donations through Pick.Click.Give. and now the website, www.matsufoodbank.org and the many other ways to contribute help us to provide emergency food year-round 5 days a week.
We are serving 3000 people a month on average through the pantry. The Pantry is open Monday thru Friday from 10 Am to 1Pm. These are your neighbors in need and we strive to give a helping hand up, not out to the working poor, children in need and our expanding senior population who survive on fixed incomes which with the State Budget crisis, is more important now than ever. The MatSu Food Bank has also provided 124,000 lbs to other agencies and pantries in 2015 at no cost to them to help feed even more of those in need. We hope to expand this again even more in 2016 with your help. Thank you from the staff and volunteers of MatSu Food Bank!
Unfortunately food prices are on the rise and it becomes more difficult to keep food on the table with limited resources. That’s why your donations are so important. As your local MatSu Food Bank, Food Pantry of Wasilla and now the Food4Kids program we appreciate all you do!
On behalf of the MatSu Food Bank, Food4Kids and Food Pantry of Wasilla; volunteers, staff and clients,
THANK YOU for thinking of us and sharing your PFD!
