This Nov 27th is #GivingTuesday. Giving Tuesday is a worldwide day of giving, a social movement, that begins after a weekend of shopping from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday has become an important part of our fundraising each year.
This year we are fundraising to impact The Main Street Market Food Pantry. Our food pantry has grown significantly over the last year, but so has the need. The community who depends on us continues to grow, especially after the closing of another large food pantry provider in our area. We need your help!
Facebook and PayPal have teamed up for Giving Tuesday 2018 and are matching donations on Facebook. Your donations to RISE Life Services will be matched when you make your donation on our Facebook page. Simply use the Donate Now button at the top of our page (underneath our cover photo). In addition, there are no fees on your donation. Every day (including #GivingTuesday), nonprofits using Facebook Payments to process donations pay no fee —100% of the donations goes to the charity.
The Main Street Market Food Pantry is located in the downtown Riverhead area at 901 East Main Street, Suite 500. It helps provide sustenance for those in our community that depend on us. Our very own neighbors come in each week on Wednesday, between 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. and pick up food items that we are allotted from Island Harvest and Long Island Cares. Help us reach our $2,500 goal to serve those in need in our Riverhead community.
