SIHAF Announces $100,000 Hunger Awareness Challenge

The Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation (SIHAF) is very thankful to the awesome loyal donors who have generously offered to match our $100,000 – 2022 Hunger Awareness Challenge! As we approach the season of Giving…Thanksgiving, we hope you will join us in raising awareness, and much needed funds to support our programs and partners in our quest to provide nutritious food and clean water to our sea island neighbors. This is the foundation’s only fundraising event of the year and we need the entire community’s support.

Awareness is our “middle name” and we’d like to make you aware of some important Hunger Facts:

  • SIHAF programs and partners serve only Johns and Wadmalaw Islands’ residents.
  • SIHAF programs and partners provide nutritious food to 2,000 sea island neighbors who deal with hunger every day, via meals, groceries including thousands of pounds of fresh produce, and clean water to over 250 homes!
  • SIHAF programs and partners must buy nearly all of the food provided to our neighbors in need. With food prices skyrocketing, every monetary donation can make a big difference.
  • SIHAF is an all-volunteer organization that lifts up those in need. Over 100 volunteers, including nine board members, give their time, talent and treasure to secure, sort, pack and distribute food to our clients. ALL donations go toward fighting island hunger. 

Please help us reach our goal of $200,000 so we can continue to provide our programs in 2023 to our sea island neighbors in need.
