Identity is grateful for the quick and generous action of Business Leaders Fighting Hunger, who today donated $12,500 for emergency food support for Identity families suffering from sudden financial stress and hunger since the COVID 19 pandemic. A match by an anonymous local business unlocked a full $25,000 that will immediately go to pay for groceries for thousands of young people and their families living in high-poverty areas of Montgomery County.
“Business Leaders Fighting Hunger showed up when we needed them most” says Carolyn Camacho, one of Identity’s program directors. “Now we can begin to head off an immediate hunger crisis among some of the most isolated, most vulnerable of our Latino and other historically underserved neighbors, and give them immediate support to make it through this unprecedented upheaval”.
Business Leaders Fighting Hunger donated a total of $50,000 for food to eight local organizations, including Manna Food Center and the Universities at Shady Grove. Read more HERE.
