Help our NKN effort--VOTE HERE!

Through a contract with the Department of Agriculture, Central Dallas Ministries provides hundreds of thousands of lunches and snacks to the children of low-income families during the summer months when schools are closed. We call this effort Nurture, Knowledge and Nutrition (NKN). CDM is delighted to be a part of a partnership between Share Our Strength® and Colgate-Palmolive, that is working to increase funding for summer feeding sites around the country!

To coincide with Mother’s Day, Colgate-Palmolive launched a campaign on April 20th called ‘Share Mom’s Love’ that features an online contest to support summer feeding programs in select cities in the U.S.

NKN is part of a national network of summer feeding programs around the country that also help to ensure that at-risk children who receive lunch through federal, school-based feeding programs during the school year continue to receive free, nutritious meals when school is out.

Here's the good news! Colgate-Palmolive has decided to take a stand and work with Share Our Strength to identify one site/sponsor in ten different cities that have the chance to receive funding to support their work – and CDM is the selected sponsor in our city!

The three cities with the most votes will receive generous funding from Colgate-Palmolive.

Please help us today! Go online to vote to ensure that we are one of the top three cities chosen – and thus recipients of much needed additional funding for our work! You will also have a chance to win a trip for two plus dinner with Colgate-Palmolive personalities.

This Mother’s Day, share mom’s love and help end childhood hunger.

And, if you don't mind, let me know when you've cast your vote.
