Friends of Martha’s Table

11.05.2010

Fall is here and that means the start of another Help the Homeless Campaign.  This year, we wanted to let you of a few changes that were made, which affect potential partners donating to the Help the Homeless Campaign.  With your help, we can maximize the impact of the Help the Homeless Campaign on Martha’s Table.

All partner donations will receive a 20% match from Fannie Mae.  In the past it was just new and/or improved partners.

Martha’s Table has experienced a drastic increase in the demand for our services in the recent past.  The demand for our emergency food services has quadrupled since 2007.  We have also seen an increased need for clothing services in our Clothing Distribution Center, Martha’s Outfitters. Our Children, Youth and Family and Food programs are now more important than ever, as families struggle to make ends meet in a difficult economic climate.

Please consider making a donation designated towards Friends of Martha’s Table and 20% of your donation will be matched by the Fannie Mae Foundation, sustaining our McKenna’s Wagon Food Program, and allowing the children, youth, and families at Martha’s Table to thrive.  With the help of donations to the Friends of Martha’s Table Fund ,we were able to successfully raise almost $250,000 from the Help the Homeless Program since 2008. We greatly appreciate your past support and hope that you will help us make this another successful Help the Homeless Program.
