All Gifts Matched To $50,000.00! This Holiday Season, YOU Can Change the LIfe of a Low-Income Family

My Story:

This year's holiday season is going to be especially difficult for America's low-income workers. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of these hard-working persons remain drastically un- or underemployed. So for these folks, this year won't be about doing a little something extra for their children. It'll be about hoping for the miracle that keeps food on the table, the lights on and a roof over their head.

That's why our Annual Appeal is especially important this year. Our goal is simple: we'd like to raise enough money to help every family that applies for our help during the holiday season, with enough left over to help the families who'll apply for our help in the early months of 2021, when giving tends to decline.

Best of all, we're THRILLED to report that Modest Needs has received a GENEROUS matching grant to support this year's Annual Appeal. Thanks to this grant, any gift you make between now and midnight, December 31 2020 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $50,000.00!

If you'd like to help us reach these critical, year-end goals, you can make the secure contribution of your choice in less than two minutes via the form below. Helping only takes a minute, but it's a gift these families need more than ever and will NEVER forget!

Thank you in advance for supporting this campaign as generously as you can. We look forward to hearing from you soon, but in the meantime, here's wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.
