Grand Rapids Needs Your Vote To Help Fight Hunger
Our news partner, WZZM 13, tells us that the city of Grand Rapids is in the running to win one million dollars to help fight hunger. The trick is, they need your vote on Facebook.
The competition is a Facebook campaign through the Walmart Foundation. Altogether, the Walmart Foundation is giving away $2 million dollars to communities to fight hunger. I'm sure we're all well aware of the growing need in our community.
There are 199 cities competing for the million dollar prize, and the voting has already begun. The one million dollars goes to the city with the most votes; the next 20 cities receive 50 thousand dollars. The money will go to local non-profit organizations that feed the needy.
Each person can vote once at day at the Walmart: Fighting Hunger Together Facebook App.
Last year Salt Lake City was awarded the one million dollar prize. So, this year, let's make it Grand Rapids and the people of West Michigan!
