Altrusa donation to help feed our community
Altrusa International of Montrose has pledged a donation of $10,000 to help the Mexican American Development Association (MADA) and Christ’s Kitchen add an addition to their existing building to enable them to feed more people and store more food donations. The club hopes that their support will spur other organizations and individuals in our community to donate to the building fund so that additional dining space can be used to serve the increasing numbers of people who need a nutritious meal.
Christ’s Kitchen currently serves a free hot lunch to approximately 100 people per weekday, but the demand can often be much higher. For some, this lunch may be their only meal of the day.
The building expansion project is expected to cost $50,000, and construction will begin when all the funds are raised.
