Harvest Hope reaches milestone, has a million to go

Just got this good news from Harvest Hope Food Bank:

Harvest Hope Reaches $300,000 Total to Attain Southeastern Freight Lines Matching Goal

May 19, 2011

COLUMBIA, SC – May 19, 2011 – Harvest Hope Food Bank announces that as of this morning, Thursday May 19 they have raised  $304,455.38 since announcing the Southeastern Freight Lines matching campaign in early April, which qualifies them for SEFL’s $150,000 matching donation for a total of $450,000.

Combined with the $456,293.67 raised during their March matching campaign staked by Mungo Homes, Harvest Hope has now raised $910,749.05 toward their $2 million funding goal announced on March 8th.  Harvest Hope now looks to raise the final $1,089,251 to reach its goal and ensure their ability to meet the growing hunger needs across 20 counties of South Carolina.

Harvest Hope wishes to thank Southeastern Freight Lines and Mungo Homes for their generosity in each staking $150,000 toward the matching campaigns, and urges other members of the business community to follow the examples set by these community leaders and step up to pledge their own matching campaigns.

Lots of progress, but lots of money still to raise to meet the goal, and keep up with the mission.
