Martha’s Village & Kitchen Over Halfway to Capital Campaign Goal of $5 Million
Earlier this month, Martha’s Village & Kitchen was joined by a warm crowd of supporters and government officials for the announcement of a $5 million campaign to Renew Hope and Rebuild Lives in the Coachella Valley. The Kick Off Party, held at the Classic Club in Palm Desert, was a huge success!
Henry Burdick, Chairman of MVK’s Board of Directors, announced that the agency has already been able to raise $2.8 million. That means that MVK is over halfway to the goal of $5 million! All of this is due to the generous supporters and partners of the organization. He also announced that an anonymous donor has pledged to donate an additional $1 million dollars when the campaign reaches $4 million. Martha’s Village & Kitchen has just $1 million dollars to go to reach the goal!
Supervisor V. Manuel Perez spoke as a special guest of the event. He reminisced about the humble beginnings of Martha’s Village & Kitchen and noted that a $5.00 donation kicked off the agency’s tradition of helping the hungry, impoverished and homeless over 27 years ago. Also, he noted the significance that the original, humble $5.00 donation has now grown into a $5 million dollar campaign to expand the programs and services MVK offers to the community. These services that include Homeless Prevention Programs, Food Services, Housing, Childcare, Career & Education, Case Management.
