Feinstein Challenge 2013
It is that time of year again: the time when philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein, from the Feinstein Foundation in Cranston, Rhode Island, challenges individuals and organizations nationwide to participate in the 16th Annual $1 Million Giveaway to Fight Hunger.
Mr. Feinstein has been giving away $1 million each year to anti-hunger agencies across the country as he believes that each of us was put here on earth to do what we can to help those in need. Your support, through a monetary donation specifically noted as part of the Feinstein Challenge or food donation, helps the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities receive more of Mr. Feinstein’s $1 million donation.
Agencies receive a portion of his $1 million, based on the amount raised for the challenge, running from March 1st through April 30th, 2013. PCRC has participated in the challenge for more than five years now, with an increase in our donation from Mr. Feinstein each year.
Can you help us to increase our donation from Mr. Feinstein this year? Checks can be made payable to PCRC, with Feinstein written on the memo line. Cash donations can also be made on our website, noting Feinstein in the box marked “On behalf of.” All food donations received during March and April will be credited to the challenge as well. The challenge is on!
