There are only 75 left and 24 hours to claim one.
Ask and you shall receive. Just a week ago, the three Rye Moms behind the “LOVE RYE” campaign were wondering out loud if they would cross the $100K mark.
The Yankees and Mets are not playing baseball but these women have been busy hitting it out of the park.
As of Thursday mid-day, the LOVE RYE effort has raised $115,000 and planted over 1,100 bright red signs on lawns across our town. “It’s really amazing,” organizer Lisa Hogan told MyRye.com. “I love driving around (town) and seeing all these signs.”
There are only 75 signs remaining for purchase before the fundraiser declares victory and closes the end of Friday.
Hogan is expecting the group to distribute funds to these recipient groups as soon as the end of next week:
- Over 125 local Rye mom & pop shops – to help with things like rent, utilities and maintaining staff;
- Bread of Life to provide food & essentials to those in need including food-insecure children, single parents and home-bound seniors;
- Caritas of Port Chester to deliver food to those in need in Port Chester and the surrounding community via a soup kitchen and food pantry.
You can make a donation online. A one hundred dollar donation will get you one of the remaining 75 bright shinny “LOVE RYE” signs planted in your front lawn.
