Bloomingdale Farmers Market message: "Please help us reach the last $2000"

Please help us reach the last $2000
Hi BFM Friend,

Please help today so our low-income neighbors can have a good Thanksgiving. 

Please think about our less fortunate neighbors as we all prepare for Thanksgiving.   If you donate to the DC Greens Farmers Market Matching Program on our website (top right on the home page or scroll down if you use your mobile), we can match our neighbors' food access dollars so they can have a really good Thanksgiving. (It is tax deductible)

We have run out of our DC Greens Farmers Market Matching funds and by Sunday we need $3000 to add to our customers' paltry SNAP Food Stamps, WIC and Senior vouchers so that they too can have a good Thanksgiving with their families.  (DC Greens is the very respected 501(c) 3 who administers the program we have at BFM.)

Please make a tax deductible donation right now. Every dollar counts if we are going to reach our goal. 
UPDATE: We reached $1000 as of Saturday noon so we only need $2000 more.
Give at our website:  Click on the donate button top right on our home page (or in the middle of the mobile home page.)

Your gift will help a lot of people have Thanksgiving next week.

Thank You.


ps. The market itself is contributing thousands of dollars in addition to what you give. That is how important we think this program is.
