Piper Partners & Friends Virtual Food Drive

Our Mission

The Piper Partners Real Estate team will be hosting a fundraiser for Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor throughout the month of February with the goal of raising $3,000.00 and awareness around the issue of hunger and food insecurity in our community.
Our Mission is to be caring, compassionate, and giving members of our community. In thinking critically about how we could do the most good for our neighbors in need right now we felt called to address food insecurity and hunger which is up 40% in Washtenaw County since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alongside our trusted business partners John R. Simpkins; mortgage lender with Level One Bank, and Peter Staton; insurance agent with Concept Insurance Agency, we will be MATCHING EVERY DONATION dollar for dollar up to $1,500.00!

Who Are Food Gatherers?

Food Gatherers is a non-profit food bank and food rescue that serves people experiencing hunger throughout Washtenaw County. In 2020 they distributed 7.8 million pounds, the equivalent of 6.5 million meals, to our neighbors in need. They service over 170 area non-profits providing hot meals, emergency groceries, and nutritious snacks to low-income adults, seniors, families, and children throughout Washtenaw County.
“Food Gatherers is not only Michigan’s first food rescue program but the first program of its kind to be founded by a for-profit business, Zingerman’s Delicatessen. A few days before Thanksgiving in 1988, Food Gatherers volunteers borrowed a van and collected 50 pounds of vegetables, bread, milk, and eggs from half a dozen grocery stores and restaurants. The food was quickly re-distributed to hot meal programs in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.”

How Can I Help?

With many individuals seeking food assistance right now for the first time in their lives, your help is needed now more than ever! The good news is that a couple of dollars goes a lot further than you’d think.

While $5.00 might get us just a few cans to donate at grocery store prices, Food Gatherers can purchase substantially more because they buy wholesale. That means that giving, no matter how small, can make a big difference for a family in need today.

To give you can access the Piper Partners & Friends Virtual Food Drive secure donation page where you can choose to give directly to the fundraiser or through one of our three teams: depending on how you heard about the drive. You can give via the Peter Staton With Concept Insurance team, the John Simpkins With Level One Bank team, or via the Piper Partners Real Estate Team. The money all goes to the same place and to the same great cause!

You can also raise awareness for the campaign and the need by liking our Facebook event and sharing our social media posts as you see them!
