It Takes a Village!
Non-profits across the country depend on grassroots, community-led fundraisers to drive their mission. The Dublin Food Pantry is no different. When we say it takes a village to keep our community fed, we mean it!
Recently, we felt the impact of how connected our Dublin community is to our mission through several grassroots fundraisers benefitting The Dublin Food Pantry.
Dublin City Schools: Annual Dodgeball Tournament at Coffman High School
Last weekend, the Dublin community gathered at Coffman High School to compete and contribute at the 2023 Annual Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Event. Despite a rainy evening, our Dublin community raised an estimated $30k towards the Dublin Food Pantry capital campaign along with 740 lbs of food donations for the pantry’s shelves.
Thank you fans, community and the many teams who gathered to compete, contribute pantry goods, cheer, and raise funds to #DodgeHunger and continue to #feeddublin
Dublin City Schools Hopewell Elementary: Coin Collection
Dublin City Schools partnered with Civista Bank to count between $1500-$2000 worth of coins collected by local elementary school students. What an outstanding job of raising funds leading up to the annual Dodgeball tournament benefitting the Dublin Food Pantry.
Thank you to all of our community members for stepping up to meet the need in our Dublin community. We are excited to continue along our comprehensive capital campaign toward the goal of moving into our soon-to-be new home at 6608 Dublin Center Dr. and are grateful for this donation to our capital campaign. An extra thanks to Rhonda of Civista for making all of this possible and Mike Lamping’s introduction of us to Civista! It takes a village and we are glad that
Civista and Hopewell are in ours!
Dublin City Schools: Karrer Middle School
Karrer Middle School recently held a food drive to kick off Dodgeball Week this week, where they collect 1900 pounds of food! Thank you for your leadership, Principal
Brooke Menduni, for inspiring these young community members to support their neighbors! A huge thank you to the parents who organized the caravan of food to get to the pantry- Wow! That is going above and beyond!
