Your Vote Could Equal $10k

We need your help! You see, the PGA Tour is giving away $10,000 per tournament to the local charity who receives the most votes during their PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge. Plus, if we really get a lot of votes, we could win an additional $65,000!

As you know, for every $1 we receive, we can provide 3 meals. So if we win...that's a lot of meals that will go to people facing hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.

Please take just a minute of your time to give us your vote...and potentially 30,000 meals!

Adopt-A-Dairy-Cow

Ongoing

Adopt-A-Dairy-CowMilk is a protein-rich product that is rarely donated to Second Harvest. On average, we can only provide approximately 1/3 of the milk that is requested by our partner agencies.

But you can help! This June, to celebrate June Dairy Month, we're looking for 650 "adopters" to adopt the milk production of a cow for a day for just $36.  If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please email Laura Gaffney or call 608.216.7205.

Beyond feeling good about helping those facing hunger this Summer, each adopter will receive an Adoption Certificate that features the "sassy" bovine beauty of their choice. 

What are you waiting for? With your help we can turn June Dairy Month into June Dairy Summer! Adopt-A-Dairy-Cow now!

WHAT IS OUTNUMBER HUNGER?

Outnumber Hunger is a partnership between General Mills, Feeding America® and Big Machine Label Group to help Feeding America secure millions of meals on behalf of local food banks.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

*Maximum total donation of $700,000. General Mills has already donated $500,000 and will donate up to an additional $200,000 based on online code entry and other consumer actions. Look for more information about the program at www.OutnumberHunger.com.
