The October “Feed the Pig” Fundraiser was a Big Success!
In just one month, the recent “Feed the Pig” fundraiser raised $18,752.18 in monetary funds to support area food pantries. Wanting to come alongside organizations helping those in need locally this holiday season, the fundraiser focused on three area food pantries: Decorah Community Food Pantry, NEIACA Food Pantry of Winneshiek and Howard Counties, and Greater Area Food Pantry in Calmar.
The community support was incredible, totaling over $11,000. Joining in on the efforts, Decorah and Cresco Bank donated $5,000, Gillette Pepsi Decorah gave $2,500 and Lynch Family Company donated $2,500 in pork. Altogether, the monetary and pork gifts equaled $21,352.18 to be divvied between the community organizations.
Thank you to all community members that gave to this important cause. Without your gifts, we could never have raised such a large amount for our community food pantries. Interested in donating? Each of the pantries accepts monetary and food donations year-round.
