Less than a year after unveiling the Stop Hunger Build Hope
Capital Campaign, we achieved our goal in raising $55 million to
help close the hunger gap in North Texas. Thank you to campaign
co-chairs, Pam and John Beckert, for their leadership throughout
every step of this campaign, and thank you to the more than 500
generous donors who gave their support. Together we helped
strengthen our local food assistance infrastructure, including our
new, state-of-the-art distribution center, the Perot Family Campus.
The Stop Hunger Build Hope campaign was created to fuel
future growth for the Food Bank and our feeding network. Funds
from the campaign have already been put in place to upgrade
infrastructure at local partnering food pantries — specifically
targeting underserved communities. This critical work also includes
development of technology solutions to better understand the
health needs of the neighbors we serve. Such enhancements further
strengthen our support base to meet the growing need for food
assistance in our community.
With a multi-generational commitment to hunger relief, the
Perot family’s generous campaign support was instrumental in
successfully concluding this campaign. The Perot Family Campus
is named in honor of Lulu May and Bette Perot for their collective
work to not only help feed hungry neighbors in North Texas, but
impart a spirit of philanthropy that continues to thrive today.
Together – through the Stop Hunger Build Hope campaign – we
made history as the largest capital campaign for a social service
agency in North Texas. Thank you for your commitment to feeding
our hungry neighbors. Together we will stop hunger.
The Stop Hunger Build Hope campaign funds various means of
strengthening the local food assistance infrastructure, including building the
new Perot Family Campus.
