Kiernans Double MLK Hunger Challenge

Peter and Eaddo Kiernan have doubled the amount of their $25,000 match challenge, created earlier this month, on behalf of the Martin Luther King Center’s food pantry. “Eaddo and I are delighted with how quickly the community has given,” Peter Kiernan said, “raising $25,000 in just a few short weeks.”

If the community can bring the total of donations to the Center up to of $50,000, the Kiernans will match it dollar for dollar. They hope to have the campaign “in the books” by Thanksgiving.

“I know that’s asking a lot,” Kiernan said, “but then, I know the community and its generosity.”
