The Trustees and Volunteers of GWCM are overwhelmed by the amazing generosity of our supporters. These include the many individuals who send checks, who donate online (gwcm.org/online-donations), and who drop off food at the pantries. It also includes the numerous companies that have awarded monetary gifts and supply food at discount; and the organizations who conduct food drives and fundraising events on behalf of GWCM.
May God bless you all!
The GWCM has been awarded an outstanding grant from the Dunkin' Joy in Childhood Foundation, enabling us to provide food as emergency relief in response to unprecedented, record demand. The Foundation is giving $1 million to food banks, food pantries, and other hunger relief organizations around the country.
The GWCM has been awarded a very sizable grant from the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund which will enable us to better address a range of basic needs, especially food security, in our region. These funds will be used exclusively to increase our capacity to serve people in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
GWCM expresses special thanks to the Community Foundation of South Jersey for their generous grant to help us provide food for the hungry in our area, especially those hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
GWCM is proud to announce receipt of funds from the Local Community Grant program of the Walmart Foundation. These funds have already been put to work supplying food to restock our food pantry shelves due to increased demand brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Thanks to the Walmart teams at facilities #3422 and #5476.
GWCM received two COVID-19 Pandemic grants from the United Way of Gloucester County, one of our long-term supporters.
GWCM gratefully acknowledges the grant from the Non Profit Development Center of Southern New Jersey. Our non-profit organization was selected as one of (3) awardees for the Pandemic Relief Grant in recognition of GWCM's continuous service to the community during this pandemic.
GWCM gives a special shout out to Chick-fil-A of Deptford for their assistance by providing the boxes we use to pack food for out clients. Recycling with a purpose of feeding neighbors in need. Thanks for the 1,000's of boxes used so far.
Stimulus Checks - For those who lost their jobs or had their income reduced due to COVID-19, the Stimulus checks sent out by the government have been a real help in this strange time. However, there are many people whose income was not affected by the shutdown. Some are essential workers, some are working from home, some have generous employers who sent them home with pay, and some are retirees whose pension checks keep coming. If you are one of the fortunate ones, the stimulus check was a gift beyond your need. We invite you to pass a portion of that gift on to someone who needs it more, perhaps a relative or neighbor. Of course, you could donate a portion to the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries food pantry to help us feed the less fortunate. Go to GWCM.org and click on Donate. Thank you.
