$27,430 towards $25,000

Thank you so much for your interest in The Family Porch-Rait Project!!
This whole fundraiser could not have gone any more spectacularly. We initially thought we’d get a little interest and raise a little money. Instead, we got tremendous interest and we raised A LOT of money - as of right now, over $18,000 is going to help provide much needed food to members of our community in The Open Door service area. This amazing organization has seen a massive spike in need because of the Covid-19 crisis and the subsequent job losses and layoffs and, with your help, has risen to meet that need.

Unfortunately, all that success means that we’ve reached absolute saturation point and can no longer accept any more requests. By the time we’re finished with our existing requests and schedule, we will have photographed nearly 200 families. We know this is disappointing, but we have to draw this fundraiser to a close.

While we can’t accommodate a photo session, the need by The Open Door remains extreme and on-going. If you’d like to donate anyway, please know that your contribution will go directly towards relieving food insecurity to, literally, your neighbors, friends and relatives. Please consider making a donation of any size to help this effort.

Thank you, and again we regret the disappointment, but deeply appreciate the amazing community support!
