Donations to Focus on Renewal in March and April Qualify for 2014 Feinstein Funds

All food and financial donations to Focus On Renewal’s (FOR) Emergency Food Pantry in March and April will help the agency earn grant money from The Feinstein Foundation. This is the sixth year FOR is participating in the annual Feinstein Foundation anti-hunger campaign.

For the 17th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein, a Rhode Island philanthropist, will divide $1 million among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide. Cash, checks and food (valued at $1.00 per item or pound) qualify for the proportionate matching grant from the Feinstein Foundation.

Greg Quinlan, Executive Director of Focus On Renewal, said, “Our generous supporters love the Feinstein challenge. Nothing motivates our caring community more than knowing that every gift will be matched. Now that the pantries in public housing are closed and there's less money for families from food stamps, the need at Focus On Renewal is greater than ever. We're lucky to once again have the support of Feinstein Foundation in helping to fill our shelves.”

To make a financial donation, mark “Feinstein” on the memo line of a check and mail to Focus On Renewal, 701 Chartiers Avenue, McKees Rocks, PA 15136. Churches, schools and businesses wishing to donate non-perishable items can drop off items at Focus On Renewal’s Community Center at 701 Chartiers Avenue in McKees Rocks during regular hours: Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
