Generosity. Positivity. OV love. That’s what this campaign is all about. The Orangevale Food Bank has received a very generous offer from an anonymous donor to spread love and positivity in and about the Orangevale community: This donor has offered to make a $10 donation for every positive comment addressing “Why I Love Orangevale” on social media with the hashtag #whyiloveov from April 30 (midnight) – May 5, 2015 (11:45 p.m. PT). The final donation will be given online just before midnight on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 as part of the Big Day of Giving.

What is the Big Day of Giving?

On May 5th, the Orangevale Food Bank will be participating in a huge and historic event for our region, the Big Day of Giving, where, over a 24 hour period from midnight to midnight, 500 non-profits will work to raise $5 million, engage 25,000 donors, and make the Sacramento region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this national day of giving.

Why is the Orangevale Food Bank participating in the Big Day of Giving?

At the Orangevale Food Bank, we exist to make a positive impact in the Orangevale and Fair Oaks communities by providing food, resources and hope to families in need. By participating in the Big Day of Giving, our goals are to broaden awareness of our services and gain new donors. We hope that with your support, we can meet our goal of raising $25,000 to broaden our reach to feed more families and fund additional programs such as our End Summer Hunger campaign focused on addressing the low supply/high demand summer season for families and children out of school.
