April News - “Feeding the Children of Greeneville and Greene County" Needs Your Help


NEWS RELEASE  –  April 21, 2017  –  Contact: Betty S. Weemes ... 787-5117

Did you know that one in four children in our county is considered “food insecure,” meaning that they do not know where or when they will get their next meal?  School breaks, like the summer break coming up, add more insecurity with the absence of meals and snacks provided during the school year.

How can you help?  Text the word FEED to 243-725 to donate to Feeding the Children of Greeneville and Greene County today.  Choose your donation and commit $5.00, $10.00, and up to this critical need in our community. 

Derby Day on Main, Saturday, May 6, presented by Laughlin Health Care Foundation, raises dollars to support Feeding the Children of Greeneville and Greene County, but additional dollars are needed.  The extra dollars raised through your texting effort will add value to the fundraising event and will enable the program to include children in four additional school areas, which will provide food during summer, Thanksgiving, and Christmas recesses.  By adding these four areas, the program will circle Greeneville and Greene County to include all neighborhoods of need.

For tickets to Derby Day on Main, please call the Laughlin Health Care Foundation office at 787-5117.  For more information, visit the event website at www.derbydayonmain.com.

If you cannot attend Derby Day on Main, but would like to donate to “Feeding the Children of Greeneville and Greene County", please text the word FEED to 243-725 and make a donation, or, call the Foundation at 787-5117. 

Help feed a local child in need, powered by your donation:  Text FEED to 243-725 to help feed the one in four children in Greeneville and Greene County, who are “food insecure.”

Thanking you in advance for caring about our children.
