Charleston, SC – This GivingTuesday, Lowcountry Food Bank will inspire generosity for our largest matching gift challenge of the year. Thanks to a generous lead gift from Lowcountry Food Bank Board of Director member, Maria Mungo and her husband, Steven Mungo, as well as a generous anonymous donor, your gift will be doubled until we reach our goal of $190,000!
Together, let’s unite to unleash the power of people and organizations this GivingTuesday. By reaching our goal, you will help Lowcountry Food Bank ensure that children, families, and seniors have equitable access to healthy food and enjoy nutritious meals this holiday season and throughout the year.
