Century Link Matching Funds Event is Back!

Communications giant CenturyLink and the Clarke M. Williams Foundation have generously supported NNEMAP’s operations over the years. Last year, CenturyLink transitioned that support to an online virtual food drive. The fundraising effort promised to match donations up to 75% of the dollar amount given. So a $100 donation would become $175 thanks to matching funds. Brilliant!

As it turned out, CenturyLink blessed NNEMAP with about a 300% match last year. In 2016 our supporters donated about $5,000 and our total take from CenturyLink was over $20,000!!! For an organization with an operating cash budget just north of $200,000, that’s a huge score!

Please consider donating generously again this year. All donations are processed online through credit card payments. To donate now, click here to go straight to the donation page. Once there you will have to…

1. Enter the dollar amount you would like to donate

2. Scroll down the page and select NNEMAP (participants are listed alphabetically by state, so you have to scroll down a ways to find us)  

3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the appropriate link to Confirm Payment (can choose PayPal or credit card)

4. Enter the required information and click the Donate Now button.

Congratulations! You have completed your donation! 

We appreciate your consideration and shared dedication to alleviating hunger in our city. Thank you to CenturyLink and Clarke M. Williams Foundation for this generous program–and THANK YOU, especially, for helping NNEMAP take advantage of this tremendous fundraising opportunity!

Christmas in August is Here!

Christmas in August

I know, I know, Christmas in August is one of the farthest things from your minds, but-t-t, now is the time to begin planning for the NNEMAP Children’s Christmas Store gifting in December.

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church has sponsored this program over the past three years. Gifts of toys from St. Andrew members, along with generous donations from other churches, groups, and individuals, have made Christmas happy for many children 1-15 years of age. St. Andrew, along with several other churches, has done a great job, but more help is needed. Last year we served over 700 kids and the need continues to grow.

This is why we are asking everyone interested to help provide gifts for NNEMAP kids. For those who don’t like to shop, a monetary gift is also much appreciated. We are giving this “Heads Up” to you so that you can get an early start for fall planning.

For more information on how you can help, please contact Susi Blackford via e-mail at sblacky@aol.com.

To provide a monetary donation in support of NNEMAP’s Christmas Gift drive, please send a check payable to

NNEMAP, Inc. c/o Jim Brown, Board Treasurer

PO Box 10614

Columbus, OH 43201

Please indicate “Christmas” in the memo so that we may apply your donation according to your wishes.

On behalf of the hundreds of kids looking forward to a happy holiday, NNEMAP says THANK YOU and

MERRY CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST!!!

Wash, Rinse,…Repaint?!?

NNEMAP Wants YOU to Help Spruce up the Pantry!

people cleaning

NNEMAP will be closed during the Ohio State Fair dates of Wednesday, July 27 through Sunday, August 7. That doesn’t mean we’re taking a vacation. While volunteers help fair patrons park their cars outside (for a modest fee), a flurry of activity will be taking place on the inside.

Before we re-open on Monday, August 8, we want to….

*Clean and disinfect all refrigeration equipment

*Thoroughly clean all floors

*Clean and disinfect all equipment

*PAINT!!!

*Reposition some shelving and storage units

*Whatever else we can squeeze into our available time

If you enjoy cleaning and painting–and come on, who doesn’t?–NNEMAP will be your little slice of heaven on earth for a solid week and a half. Projects will start most mornings at 9:00. We want our pantry to be spic-and-span with a shiny new-car smell when we welcome shoppers back for service–we need YOUR HELP to do it!

*Groups welcome

*Drop-ins welcome

*Wear clothing that you can get dirty or get paint on

Sound like fun? Call Sean Becker at 405-850-1688 or e-mail sean@nnemappantry.org to schedule your date today!

CenturyLink Fundraiser Exceeds Great Expectations

Food Drive 2016The dust has settled and the coins have fallen into their slots. The final tally is in for CenturyLink’s 2016 Backpack Buddies Food Drive and NNEMAP made off with quite a haul.

For every dollar donated through the Backpack Buddies website between June 6 and 17, the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation pledged to match 75 percent. We were hoping to rope in about 10 grand. A tidy sum when coupled with a $7,500 match.

Well, we failed in our bid to secure $10,ooo in donations…but we far exceeded our goal. Howzawha?!? Yep–it’s true. Nationwide, donations through the fund drive came in at about $700,000. True to their word, the good people at the Clarke M. Williams Foundation distributed matching funds totaling a cool million.

A total of 28 donors gave NNEMAP $5,507 through the website. Forget the 75 percent matching funds. CenturyLink nearly quadrupled that total. As a result of this spectacular display of philanthropic largesse, NNEMAP got a whopping $20,358.77!

NNEMAP was far and away the leading recipient among Ohio charities and cracked the top 20 nationwide. We could not have done it without YOUR support. So THANK YOU to all of our generous donors for leading the way. Your exemplary response to this unique fund drive will put food on thousands of plates in the months to come!

CenturyLink Matching Funds Help You Give 175 Percent

Century Link

Communications giant CenturyLink and the Clarke M. Williams Foundation have generously supported NNEMAP’s operations over the years. This year, CenturyLink is hosting an online virtual food drive. One website is set up to process all monetary donations.

If you’re not a details person, you can click here to skip right to that page and make your donation (please and thank you!).

If you are a details person, we’re pretty sure you’re going to be glad you stuck around for the fine print. In past years, CenturyLink has solicited for food and cash donations. While food donations are still welcome, you can get the most bang–or ‘bank’–for your buck by donating cash.

Why?

Because the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation will match all financial donations made between now and June 17th. For every dollar you donate, the foundation will kick in 3 quarters. If you donate $100, NNEMAP gets $175. If you donate $500, NNEMAP gets $875, etc.

You can see how this works–it’s a great way for you to get the most out of your donation to NNEMAP! All you have to do is click here and have your credit card handy. It’s that easy!

Thank you to the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation for this generous program–and thank you for helping NNEMAP take advantage of this tremendous fundraising opportunity!
