MFHS is thrilled to announce that we are partnering with AllOne Charities once again to celebrate #GivingTuesday! Your donation will be doubled thanks to the generosity of AllOne:

Every gift made to MFHS up to $1,000 total will be matched by AllOne. Donations must be made via the AllOne Charities website to qualify for the match. AllOne is offering bonuses to the non-profits participating in 2022, including:

  • The non-profit that raises the most money earns a $1,000 bonus.
  • The non-profit with the most individual donors also earns a $1,000 bonus.
  • Every $250 raised gains MFHS an entry into a drawing for a “random act of kindness” $1,000 bonus.

This year, MFHS will be using the funds raised during Giving Tuesday to buy supplies for our very first Women’s Pantry in our Hazleton office. A Leadership Northeast program group is donating their time to build and stock the pantry, and then MFHS will take over keeping the pantry stocked, starting with what we raise today.

While food pantries will sometimes carry general hygiene products or even diapers, it’s rare to find one that stocks period supplies. For our clients that are struggling, this is an expense that can get pushed behind priorities like keeping food on the table. Our Hazleton staff see clients making decisions on birth control based solely on the methods that can stop their periods because it means they don’t have to buy period supplies. Starting this pantry will remove this stress from our clients lives. Your donation will help kick start a program that we plan to replicate across our sites to help even more clients in need.

Please mark your calendars and consider making an end of year gift to support MFHS via the AllOne #GivingTuesday website. Every gift, large and small, will help us continue to provide life changing health and nutrition services to women, children and families in Northeast Pennsylvania.
