McCaffrey Health Center To Kick Off Fundraiser Challenge, ‘Give The Gift of Health’ To Raise Funds for Central Illinois Foodbank

It’s that time of year! The McCaffrey Health Center is launching a 5-week fundraising blitz, ‘Give The Gift of Health’ with a goal of raising $5,000 in food and funds for Central Illinois Foodbank. Dr. Sean McCaffrey is challenging local businesses to join in the drive! McCaffrey Health Center will donate $1 for every can donated throughout the campaign.

The campaign will kick off on December 1 and will continue until January 6, 2018.

McCaffrey Health Center will accept non-perishable food donations and monetary donations at its center at 3330 Hedley Road, Suite C, Springfield, IL 62711 between 8 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday during the entire month of December up through January 6th  inclusive.

Dr. Sean McCaffrey and his wife Rebecca McCaffrey will visit the Foodbank on January 10th to present the donation and meet with the staff.

Every year, nearly 107,000 people in the Foodbank’s 21-county region do not know where their next meal will come from. Of those, nearly 40,000 are children. Central Illinois Foodbank distributes over 9 million pounds of food annually to nearly 150 food pantries, soup kitchens, residential programs and after-school programs.
