Summit Financial Wealth Advisors, a Lafayette-based company, has generously offered to match donations to Second Harvest Food Bank dollar for dollar up to $50,000 through September 30 to support the food bank’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
“We are so grateful to Summit Financial Wealth Advisors for stepping up and making this generous gift,” says Natalie Jayroe, Second Harvest President and CEO. “Thanks to this matching offer, we can raise twice as much money for relief efforts, and our donors can see their gifts go further. As we are well aware here in South Louisiana, the need for relief is long-term. Second Harvest is committed to helping victims of this disaster as long as it takes them to get back on their feet, and this gift will help us keep those relief efforts going.”
People are encouraged to take advantage of this offer early, to ensure that your gift will be matched. Second Harvest is sending truckloads of food, water, and supplies to the impacted areas almost daily, and we count on donations of products and funds to ensure that we can continue deliveries to those most in need.
Second Harvest continues to accept donations of food and supplies at our Elmwood and Lafayette warehouses and our partner agency, the Northshore Food Bank and monetary donations on our website.
