Fundraiser will help provide supplies for Children's Lunchbox
ANCHORAGE – Using Groupon to get a great deal? You can use your discount to help feed children, too.
Children’s Lunchbox has partnered with the deal-of-the-day website again to raise money for the newest Mountain View kitchen. A $10 donation through Groupon will help stock the new facility with small wares, which the nonprofit says they need to help keep up with their demand.
“Cooking utensils, cooking sheets — all types of things you see in the kitchen that we use on a daily basis — they get a lot of wear and tear,” said Executive Director Lisa Sauder. “We serve dinner five days a week, 80 to 100 meals a week. You go through a lot of equipment.”
Children’s Lunchbox is looking to raise $3,000 to $4,000, and Denali Federal Credit Union will match all donations up to $20.
