Solving hunger across New Mexico this December also means the opportunity to double your impact! Thus, in so small way, solving hunger starts with you! You can help solve hunger in a state where 1 in 5 people go hungry.

Through December 31st, every $1 you give to Roadrunner will be doubled in impact. Businessman Gary Goodman and other anonymous donors will match gifts made in December up to $80,000. Ultimately, your gift provides twice as many meals in 2016!

Your December gift with double the impact can help someone like Elizabeth. A single mother and raising a daughter, Elizabeth recently applied for food at the Salvation Army in Albuquerque (a Roadrunner partner agency) after going through a series of shelters and pantries.

“I’ve had bad back arthritis the last few months and when I’m feeling in good shape, I do cleaning at our housing block,” Elizabeth told us. “I just don’t have the health to find steadier work right now. I hadn’t heard of Roadrunner before coming here, but now that I know, thank you for all you do!”

We are more than honored to serve Elizabeth and her family, alongside thousands of families across New Mexico year-round. When you give this month, your $1 will provide 10 meals for Elizabeth and many, many others!

To double your impact this December, you can give at www.rrfb.org/match or text any giving amount to 505.933.7732. Thank you so much for giving hope to our hungry neighbors this December!
