The Piper Partners Real Estate Team is hosting a donation matching campaign throughout the month of February alongside our trusted business partners, Peter Staton, Agent with Concept Insurance, and John Simpkins, Lender with Level One Bank in order to raise donations for Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor. In order to make your donation go even further, our teams are pledging to match dollar for dollar up to a total amount of $1,500!
Food Gatherers is the food bank and food rescue serving people experiencing hunger throughout Washtenaw County. In 2020 they distributed 7.8 million pounds, the equivalent of 6.5 million meals, to our neighbors in need.
Your help is needed now more than ever! Washtenaw County has seen a nearly 40% increase in hunger since the COVID-19 pandemic began, with many individuals seeking food assistance for the first time in their lives.
The good news is that a couple of dollars goes a lot further than you'd think. While $5.00 might get us just a few cans to donate at grocery store prices, Food Gatherers can purchase substantially more because they buy wholesale. That means that giving, no matter how small, can make a big difference for a family in need today.
Will you help us fight hunger in our community today?
