Project Bread’s Strike Out Hunger Bowl-a-thon
Sponsored by iBasis
“Today, thousands of people in Massachusetts experience hunger because they cannot afford adequate food. Local families are struggling even more this year to put food on the table because of a recent rise in the cost of everyday food and the high cost of living in the state.
In fact, many families and individuals who never thought they’d need to ask for help are now having to decide between paying rent, getting medical care, or buying food. Money raised through Strike Out Hunger will help our neighbors get through the tough winter months that lie ahead.
Register today as a team captain, recruit teammates from your friends, family and co-workers, raise $650 or more per lane as a team and join us on October 30th for a good time while making a real difference.
Don’t have a team to join? Join Team Project Bread and have fun and meet others who are also passionate about ending hunger in Massachusetts!”
Looking at some old tweets from @TelphoneCard you can see some of the money we have helped raise for this local cause.
