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 Bank’s 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 Bank’s Facebook page (up to $5,000).
