Euclid Hunger Centerís $20,000 Pyramid

March 1st marked the launch of an exciting fundraising effort by the Euclid Hunger Center.  EHC’s $20,000 Pyramid is an opportunity for 20 Euclid corporations, organizations or families to show their commitment to fighting hunger in our city.  Each participant will be asked to pledge $1,000 to the Euclid Hunger Center, payable by June 1st. Our partners can simply write a check, or involve their employees, vendors and customers in an event or drive to raise the funds.

The EHC van is crucial to the Hunger Center’s work.  Volunteers use the van Wednesday thru Saturday, to pick up food purchases and donations for our semi-weekly food distributions.   Rather than taking out a loan, we purchased the van using funds from our operating budget, so it is important that those funds be restored in order for us to continue serving the more than 700 families who come through our doors each month.

Participants will receive a number of benefits, such as:

  • Logo displayed on the back of the EHC van for one year

  • mentions on our weekly Facebook and Twitter updates

  • Name & logo prominently displayed at the EHC Kick off Summer event in June

  • 2 tickets to the Kick off Summer event

  • Name added to the EHC Wall of Thanks plaque

“The $20,000 goal may seem lofty,” said Board President Grace Wright, “but the citizens of Euclid have shown us time and again that they support the work we are doing, and we are confident that the business leaders in our community will step up to the challenge of committing these funds.”

Members of the EHC Board of Directors will be personally reaching out to many area businesses, but if your organization or family would like to be a part of this fundraiser, please contact the Hunger Center directly at 216-731-3329 or euclidhungercenter@gmail.com

We look forward to keeping you updated on our progress.
