Freeze Out Hunger Event / by Sarah

I was so honored when the Junior League of Portland asked me to design a new logo and invitation for their annual auction and gala, Freeze Out Hunger.  The money raised goes towards their continued effort in working to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in the greater Portland area.  My sister is very involved with the event and I was thrilled to offer some design help to such a worthy cause.



So if you are in the Portland, Maine area and want to have a lovely evening while raising money for a very worthy cause please come out and join us.  I hope to make it up for the event.

Last year the funds helped them do some amazing things:

· Prepared and served more than 200 meals for low-income, at-risk teens
· Made monthly deliveries of food staples to more than 20 isolated senior citizens
· Fed approximately 50 families over the holidays by donating & organizing complete ‘meals in a bag’
· Saved 40 families money by helping them identify low-cost healthy recipes
· Donated more than 1,000 pounds of food to a local food pantry during its most critical months
· Helped seniors plant a garden so they could enjoy healthy, low-cost vegetables
· Awarded a $2,000 grant to Southern Maine Area Agency on Aging’s meal programs
