Scan Away Hunger Results 2019:
The Scan Away Hunger campaign ran at about 20 partner locations in London from November 1 – December 31. And at a London Lightning game on February 29, 2020, we revealed the preliminary campaign total for 2019.
This past year, the campaign goal was $115,000; that’s over 36,900 meals! So, how much did we actually raise?
The final, total amount raised is…actually $115,000! Those funds will provide nutritious meals for those most vulnerable in our community, and will be an enormous help to those experiencing homelessness, poverty, and hunger in our area.
A special thank you goes out to the location partners and group partners and a BIG thank you goes out to every person who scanned away a meal. None of this would have been possible without each and every one of you!
