Our GoFundMe is over and we have plenty to show for it too. This campaign has raised just over $40,000 and as a result we now have a Truck and are able to provide maintenance for at least the first year. This truck has been put to many good uses already and is hardly in our parking lot long enough to even capture a photo.
We now have a new staff member, Transport and Truck Guru (as we call him), Travus Viera. We keep Travus plenty busy picking up food at grocery stores, the food bank in Durham and even a food drive where he collected 1600 lbs of food. He has also been delivering food to the Chatham County Backpack Programs.
If you noticed, in the original campaign photo, we were also looking to raise money for a much needed new roof. We are so incredibly honored and pleased to report that our new roof is now completed and paid for by the county allowing us to use the funds raised for the new truck and maintenance. Thank you to the Chatham County Government and the Chatham County Commissioners for making this feel like a miracle has happened at CORA.
We can’t begin to Thank you all for your campaign donations and making a huge impact on what we do at CORA Food Pantry.
