April - May

April 1, 2022
Thank you for your past support of Kambly and the Food Bank of South-Central Michigan with your participation in the Food Bank Challenge!

As a non-profit organization, Kambly Living Center has the privilege of being able to utilize the services of the Food Bank of South-Central Michigan. The Food Bank is conveniently located in the Industrial Park right here in Battle Creek and is part of Feeding America and the Food Bank Council of Michigan, making national and state food resources available to us for a small fee. With the help of donors and volunteers, the Food Bank provides a wonderful, essential service to our food service program.

We need your support again this year in meeting the Food Bank Challenge. This is the LAST year for the 10% match. In the future, you are still welcome and encouraged to donate to Kambly’s account but the 10% match will no longer be a benefit. That is why this is a crucial last chance to help us obtain matching dollars. The donated monies do not have an expiration date and will remain in our account until we use them. We have participated in this program for the last six years and it has been a huge benefit to our organization.

This is a national challenge, to fight hunger and provide nutritious food at drastically reduced prices. However, from April 1 – to May 31 for every donation made to our agency's account at the Food Bank, the Food Bank will credit our account by an additional 10%. It's the most effective and efficient means to make a monetary contribution to Kambly's food program. Last year Kambly received record donations in the amount of $8,663.16 which translated into thousands of dollars of food and supplies; this was a huge boost to our food budget.

Please remember, you must make your contribution between April 1 – and May 31 in order to be eligible for the Food Bank Challenge and for Kambly to receive the 10% match. Thank you again for your past support of this program and for all you do to help our organization.

Please click on the donate now button below to help Kambly. 

IMPORTANT: When donating online you must leave this message in the leave a comment field, Kambly Agency Number A-1295. This will ensure Kambly receives your donation.
