Instead of holding our traditional one-day Hunger Walk in September, Dare to Care will be offering two ways to support our mission this fall: Hunger Action Month and the Bobby Ellis Memorial Vigil.
September is Hunger Action Month, a time when people all over the country stand together to fight hunger. This is an opportunity to join a movement that has a real impact on our effort to feed more of our neighbors in need. We challenge you to learn more about food insecurity in our community and choose a way to take action.
There are many ways to join our efforts during Hunger Action Month!
- Donate: Every $1 donated helps provide 3 meals for our community! During the week of September 28th, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $17,000, thanks to a matching gift from Gutter Helmet!
- Volunteer: Find a volunteer opportunity and sign up today!
- Raise awareness: Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and share our posts with your network. You can also change your profile picture to include a Hunger Action Month frame.
- Support Dare to Care at Total Wine & More: During Hunger Action Month, Total Wine & More will be partnering with Dare to Care on their Points with a Purpose campaign. Visit the Louisville TWM stores to earn points with your purchase that convert to a donation to Dare to Care.
Whether you choose to donate, volunteer, raise awareness, or participate in an event, your involvement will make a difference for people experiencing hunger. Thank you for supporting Dare to Care!
