Thank you to all of our donors who participated in the Feinstein Challenge this past spring. Your support generated a
remarkable $183 million nationally to fight hunger in America. Because of the many (over 1700) participating agencies,
each participating agency's portion is modest but the true value is that it is a catalyst to our donors' generosity.
Once again, we thank our donors as well as The Feinstein Foundation for their nation-wide generosity. For a list of
participating agencies, including Meals on Wheels Programs & Services of Rockland, and the proportional amount of the
$1 million received, please click Here to visit the Feinstein Foundation web site.
