By Francie Lin, GFN Writer-in-Residence I think everyone would rather forget the early pandemic days…
It’s that time of year again! Your gift to Grow Food Northampton can win you a prize, and help us win some too!
Donors will have two ways to win one of four raffle prizes. Each prize is $25 in Tuesday Market tokens, plus a Grow Food Northampton pint glass and t-shirt. For a chance to win:
- Share your donation confirmation (part of the checkout process on the Valley Gives platform) on Facebook — you must tag us (@GrowFoodNorthampton) and say a few words about why you gave. Note: You must make this one post PUBLIC so we can see it and enter you in the drawing.
- Show proof of your gift to us at Tuesday Market (either a gift made earlier in the day or on the spot).
Double your chances — enter twice by sharing on Facebook AND showing proof of your gift at market!
We are starting with a $5,000 match thanks to a generous board member. If we receive at least that much in donations, we have a chance at another $5,000 in prize money from the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts! We’re also looking for as many new donors and donors under the age of 40 as possible — even a $10 gift can help us do well in these categories and earn prize money.
Please support Grow Food Northampton and other nonprofits who make the Valley a great place to live!
