How Much Has Dearborn Contributed to Patch's Virtual Food Drive?

Patch Fights Hunger, a fundraiser for Gleaners Community Food Bank, runs through Nov. 24.

Thanks to dozens of generous donations, Patch has raised $3,276 through our Patch Fights Hunger online food drive, supporting Gleaners Community Food Bank.

Of the donations made so far, $495 has come from Dearborn Patch readers—more than any other Patch community in southeast Michigan.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to feed families throughout southeast Michigan.

This virtual food drive runs through Sunday, Nov. 24, and is the first for the Gleaners Community Food Bank. The 30 Michigan Patch sites are proud and honored to be their first partner.

It was fun to make a donation on the Gleaner's Food Bank site. You can see how your donation dollars can be spent to help the hungry by clicking on breakfast, lunch and dinner items to see the cost of each. The total is shown as you click to "shop" for for the items, to help you decide how much you want to donate. Thank you, Patch, for making it so easy and to donate to this worthy cause!
