Hungerthon with iHeartRadio Springfield and Ozarks Food Harvest is September 11th – 14th. There are two easy ways to donate to Hungerthon and the Weekend Backpack Program: by phone or online. For $30 a month, or a one-time donation of $360, you can provide a child with a Backpack full of kid friendly, nutritious food to take home every weekend during the school year, when they might otherwise go hungry. Just $15 monthly, or a one-time gift of $180, will provide a child meals every weekend for one school semester. Or join us for a special donation of $105.90, or $8.83, monthly to help a child receive much-needed meals through the Weekend Backpack Program. Anyone sponsoring a backpack for a semester or a year will receive a Hungerthon T-shirt!
To make your donation over the phone, call the HyVee Hunger Hotline at 417-890-5429. Operators will be available to take your donation over the phone on Friday, September 11th from 6am – 6pm and Monday, September 14th from 6am-1pm.
You can also make a donation any time at ozarksfoodharvest.org/donate/hungerthon.
