Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry and Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry Collaborative

$25,000

The Dunham Fund supports community efforts for the highly successful, “Fill The Warehouses” Matching Pallet Program Radio-thon held in June of 2017 in collaboration with the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry. The $25,000 donation was a matching grant to contributions from community members and corporate contacts.

Summer is a critical time to keep the pantry’s food shelves stocked since children no longer receive lunch through school programs. The funds that feed these children also feed thousands of families throughout the Aurora area community. All pallets of food and monetary donations procured during the radio-thon were split 50/50 between the two food pantries.
