$34,000 Raised to Help Feed Local Children

 

February 01, 2013 --

Albany, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

It was a record-breaking year for the 2012 CDPHP® Holiday Appeal for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.

CDPHP, along with area businesses, organizations and individuals donated $34,033 to the appeal, which benefits the Food Banks BackPack Program. The 2012 appeal brought in nearly $11,000 more than 2011.

The BackPack Program currently serves nearly 800 children in 32 schools across 10 counties double the number of children served only a year ago. It provides nutritious, non-perishable food to children in grades K to 6 on Fridays to help feed them over the weekend. This was the 12th year that CDPHP has sponsored the program.


The CDPHP Holiday Appeal ran through the month of December, with CDPHP matching donations of $100 or more (up to $5,000) and contributing $5 for every new like on the Regional Food Banks Facebook page (up to $5,000).

We are thrilled by the outpouring of support for 2012 CDPHP Holiday Appeal and the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. Hundreds of area children will have access to healthy food on the weekend through the Food Banks BackPack Program thanks to the generous donations.

The CDPHP Holiday Appeal far exceeded our highest expectations this year, said Mark Quandt, executive director of the Regional Food Bank. We thank CDPHP and all the businesses and individuals who supported the Appeal for making it possible for needy and vulnerable children in our communities to be properly nourished, grow, thrive, and be more productive in school. What a wonderful gift.
