Closing in on $2million Capital Campaign Goal!by Montgomery Area Food Bank on 12/09/13
Construction is under way on our facility expansion! With more than $1.9 million raised, the Food Bank is within $55,000 of our $2 million Capital Campaign goal. This Capital Campaign will add nearly 24,000 sq ft of badly needed space to our existing facility, including three new shipping and receiving docks, a 90,000 cu. ft. freezer and cooler to support our distribution of fresh and healthy product, and a Volunteer Service Center.
Nearly $40,000 of the remaining needed is eligible for a matching grant thanks to the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. This generous grant will match every $1 donated with $2 from the Foundation.
The new addition lays the foundation for service increases that will ensure we are better able to serve the more than 330,000 impoverished individuals living in 35 of Alabama’s 67 counties who turn to MAFB and our network of community-based Partner Agencies for assistance.
With construction moving rapidly, we anticipate that the new facility addition will be up and running in early 2014.
