I have some important news that will help us feed more families this holiday season. See below.  --Gary

A dear friend of Mercy Chefs contacted me and offered to extend a special $100,000 GIVING TUESDAY MATCHING CHALLENGE!

This is by far the largest Giving Tuesday Challenge we have ever received. This friend is offering to match DOLLAR-FOR-DOLLAR every donation we receive TODAY up to the $100,000 total.

This is an amazing blessing, but here's my challenge...

This $100,000 matching challenge applies EXCLUSIVELY to contributions made TODAY on Giving Tuesday!

Will you help me fully match this historic Giving Tuesday challenge? Please prayerfully consider matching the LARGEST GIFT you have made this year with a gift today that will be DOUBLED by this special Giving Tuesday matching challenge. Go here to make your gift directly to Mercy Chefs:

+ + The needs have been extraordinary...

The timing of this special Giving Tuesday Matching Challenge is an incredible blessing. This year alone, Mercy Chefs has already provided over 4.5 million meals during what has been an unprecedented year of outreach.

Within days of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Ann and I were on the Romania-Ukraine border as the Lord opened an amazing window of opportunity for Mercy Chefs to help get food and relief directly to hurting families on the frontlines of that horrible war! More than nine months later, we are still delivering hundreds of thousands of pounds of relief to those in need.

Mercy Chefs has also provided hundreds of thousands of meals this year to those impacted by tornadoes, wildfires, flooding and hurricanes, including our largest domestic disaster deployment ever in response to Hurricane Ian. During Ian, we provided over 200,000 hot meals and a record-setting 23,243 meals in one day. This is all in addition to our ongoing outreaches through our community kitchens to help those facing severe hardship here at home.

These outreaches have stretched and challenged our resources. This is why this amazing $100,000 Matching Challenge is such an incredible blessing. But I must raise $100,000 today to release the full $100,000 Matching Challenge gift.

Can I count on your help today on Giving Tuesday? Please ask the Lord how you can partner with Mercy Chefs. Then, go here to make your gift.

Finally, thank you so much for your faithfulness and your support.

God bless!

Gary LeBlanc, Mercy Chefs
