Update #3

7 months ago

We did it!!! 
 
Thanks to the grace and generosity of 500+ donors, we raised over $158,000 in donated food and monetary donations. These donations will continue to feed 200 Bayside MLK and Willow Creek Academy families in need through August 2020. It's astounding!  The whole Marin City community is deeply touched and grateful for the outpouring of support. 
 
The food "Bags of Love" each week are possible thanks to your support and a dedicated team of volunteers who coordinate all the logistics of ordering, shopping, unloading, sorting, bagging, and distribution.  We are deeply humbled and grateful to you all.  We simply couldn't do it without you.  

Please be on the lookout for our next campaign, to be announced in the coming days, which will help provide supplemental food to 100 households in the Hilarita neighborhood of Tiburon. THANKS AGAIN!!

More Info

When you donate to the Food "Bags of Love" for Marin City Fund, the money will be used to buy food to fill grocery bags for Bayside MLK Jr. Academy and Willow Creek Academy families in need of food during this global pandemic. 

Bayside MLK Jr. Academy Principal David Finnane said, "The SF/Marin Food Bank supplies amazing produce and other miscellaneous items each Wednesday at the school but families are in need of pantry items like canned soup, canned vegetables, canned tuna, beans, oatmeal, peanut butter, rice, pasta, and jars of pasta sauce." 

We are hoping to distribute 180+ bags of food to Bayside MLK Jr. Academy and Willow Creek  Academy families each week through August 2020, so we need folks to be as generous as possible! 

Bridge the Gap College Prep, a collaborative partner of the Sausalito Marin City School District, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which makes all donations to this fund tax-deductible

Thank you! 

With heartfelt gratitude and appreciation,

Bayside MLK Jr.  Academy, Willow Creek Academy, and Bridge the Gap College Prep

Update #2

Thank you again for contributing to the Food "Bags of Love" for Marin City campaign. We are incredibly touched by your grace and generosity during this difficult time. Thanks to you, we have been able to distribute supplemental food to 180 Bayside MLK Jr Academy and Willow Creek Academy families in need each week.

We’re happy to report that, with the help of Andy’s Local Market allowing us to buy bulk food at cost, we have been able to adjust our overall goal to $126,000. To date we have raised $74,674 in monetary donations (checks and online donations) and $27,000 in food donations. This leaves us with just $24,326 left to raise. If you haven’t already, please share the link with friends and families so that we can reach the goal and fulfill our mission.

With heartfelt gratitude and appreciation,
The Food Bags of Love for Marin City Team
