Thanks to some dear friends of Mercy Chefs, I'm thrilled to share with you a breakthrough that will help us reach even more hurting families and elderly shut-ins this summer.

Some friends of this ministry pooled their resources to help create a $30,000 SUMMER OUTREACH MATCHING CHALLENGE to help Mercy Chefs meet the unprecedented need for meals we're seeing this summer (it's possible we could provide ONE MILLION MEALS this month alone!).

There is no way we could have projected this incredible demand. That means we urgently need help right now.

That's why this Summer Outreach Matching Challenge is a godsend! If we can match the entire amount (by the end of this month if possible), it will go a long way to helping us keep up with the incredible pace of the need.

Can you help?

Go here to make your tax-deductible gift directly to Mercy Chefs -- DOUBLED IN IMPACT by this special Summer Outreach Challenge:

+ + Every Dollar You Donate Is DOUBLED

Because of this special challenge, every dollar you donate (until we fully match the amount) will effectively be DOUBLED by a corresponding gift. That means...

  • A gift of $50 will be DOUBLED IN IMPACT to $100
  • Just $100 DOUBLED to $200 will help us provide 400 meals to hurting families and elderly shut-ins
  • If you can help with $250, it will be matched by another gift of $250 and help us reach ONE THOUSAND people
  • $500 doubles to $1,000; $1,000 doubles to $2,000, and so on

I am amazed at what God is doing through the faithful partnership of friends like you. There seems to be no end in sight to the opportunities before us to help hurting people. The economic devastation caused by the COVID crisis has left far too many people in an urgent place of need. In one of the communities we are serving, we have enough resources lined up to fill truckloads of food for the next 4-6 weeks. And our "Farmers to Families"  bases of operation continue to reach hundreds of thousands every week.

But all this leaves me with an enormous financial challenge this month and for the rest of the summer.

I can't shrink back -- not with so many hurting families and shut-in seniors still struggling at a time where COVID cases are increasing in many states. Simply put, I need help, and I'm turning to you to help me match this Summer Outreach Matching Challenge.

Finally, thank you so much for your faithful partnership with Mercy Chefs. These are historically difficult times, yet the Lord is using Mercy Chefs in unique ways to meet what has been an unprecedented need. I'm so grateful for friends like you, because all of this would not be possible without faithful partners.

I look forward to hearing from you, and God bless!

P.S. Perhaps you would even consider matching or even exceeding the largest gift you've made recently to Mercy Chefs. The need is that critical and so is this time in our nation's history. With tensions running higher than we've seen in decades, we must find ways to reach out with God's love to help heal hurting hearts. Go here to help:
