Giving for Today & Tomorrow

Give a gift that grows

Marsha G. has a deep history of contributing to The Food Group and for the last several years, she has inspired others to give, too. Marsha feels strongly about providing hunger relief in her community. And she says The Food Group, “does such a great job!” 

Marsha became a regular donor more than thirty years ago. Then later she became a Monthly Nourisher to provide a steady stream of support through an automatic gift each month.

When she and her husband wrote their wills, they each chose a favorite charity to receive part of their estate. Marsha chose The Food Group to receive her legacy. 

In addition, Marsha has a group of friends from her teaching career who continue to socialize. They make time to get together a few times a year to catch up and to celebrate birthdays. They decided to make charitable gifts in honor of each other’s birthdays. “We didn’t need any more stuff,” Marsha says. So, they each chose a favorite cause and Marsha of course, chose The Food Group, where she has had a long relationship.

Thank you, Marsha, for your dedication to hunger relief!
