NNEMAP + CJO Combine to Jazz Up Your Holidays

For the past 10 years, November has been a big fundraising month for NNEMAP Food Pantry. Our annual “Harmony for Hunger” concert brings together hundreds of volunteers, donors, church partners and patrons for a night of great music. The concert raises between $10-$15,000 for NNEMAP.

This year’s event was cancelled–but you can still get the gift of music this Thanksgiving season. NNEMAP Food Pantry and Jazz Arts Group are teaming up to make it happen. We’re just asking for a little help.

OFFER EXTENDED! Donate Now Through December 4!!!

DONATE $50 and we will send you a copy of “Come Together”–a compilation of classics from all eras performed by the incomparable Columbus Jazz Orchestra. As an extra bonus, the first 10 donors will get a copy signed by CJO Conductor Byron Stripling! 

DONATE $250 and you get to participate in a special virtual conversation with Byron (first 10 donors at this level only). Got a question about the band? One of the songs on the CD? Curious about the recording session? Ask Byron in this intimate forum!

Don’t Delay–Jazz Up Your Day!!!

Zaftig Round Up to Benefit NNEMAP!

Zaftig Brewing Company is teaming up with NNEMAP Food Pantry! The local craft beer artisans are donating ALL of the “round-up” cash collected at their locations now through the end of the year! Big beers…small change…HUGE impact!!!

And now…MATH! 

NNEMAP Food Pantry distributed the equivalent of about 526,000 meals in 2019 (total through October 15 of this year: 447,000)

NNEMAP’s total cost per meal in 2019 was about 44 cents.

A cash-register round-up, on average, comes out to about 50 cents.

Approximate number of cash-register round ups needed to fund NNEMAP Food Pantry for 1 year: a lot!

Our work is clear: Go to Zaftig Brewing Company and round up at the register!

Can You Share Your Gifts With Us?

The blustery autumn months are upon us. Before you know it, those holidays are going to be blowing down the street, right toward us. 

YIPES!

For NNEMAP Food Pantry customers, holiday gifts can be out of reach. That’s why we try to brighten up those days by offering toys and gifts to our youngest customers. Last year NNEMAP Food Pantry served 4,675 children aged 17 or younger. Nearly 1,000 of them received holiday gifts. That put a lot of smiles on little faces!

The Holiday Gift Shoppe is back for 2020–and we fear it may be needed more than ever. We can only offer this special service with your help. Can you donate a gift–or your gifts–to put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season? 

Here’s how you can help:

*Donate new, unwrapped gifts: here are some great GIFT IDEAS

*Donate funds on our DONATION PAGE

*Donate your time by volunteering! Here’s how YOU CAN HELP!

*Print and share a copy of our informational flyer: PRINT A COPY NOW!

THANK YOU FOR HELPING MAKE THE HOLIDAYS A SPECIAL TIME FOR OUR YOUNGEST CUSTOMERS!!!

Thank You, Donors!

Dear NNEMAP Food Pantry Donors,

Wow. There are no words to describe your generosity, so “Wow,” is going to have to do. The “Big Give” ended yesterday afternoon at 6:00pm. In just 32 hours, you donated $52,513.89 to NNEMAP Food Pantry. And that’s BEFORE our share of matching funds from the prize pool.

Wow. 

In a year when we have lost so much, you reminded us of just how much we have. We have your support. We have your encouragement. We have…you.

On behalf of the thousands of area households we serve, thank you for being there for us.

From the entire staff and Board of Directors, thank you for walking beside us as we strive to eliminate hunger in our city.

From all of us to all of you–THANK YOU for your support.

 

Gratefully,

NNEMAP Food Pantry
