EUGENE, Ore. — Food For Lane County announce that it had met its donation goal Tuesday, way ahead of schedule.
In early February, organizers say an anonymous donor approached them with a challenge to raise $100,000 by February 28th and the donor would match the amount.
Since then, organizers say donations have been pouring in through online donations and the SCAN-a-Coupon program. As of Tuesday, FFLC received enough money to match funds, well ahead of next week’s deadline.
The donor remains truly anonymous, not even the heads of FFLC know the person’s identity.
