During the month of June, we asked our fans to nominate someone (a friend, a family member, a co-worker, etc.) who has performed a Mini Act with a Mighty Impact on our contest website. We were immediately flooded with spectacular nominees – hundreds of folks making a difference in communities across the country! After narrowing the nominees down to the Top 10 Finalists and a few weeks of public voting, we finally came away with a winner.
And the Winner is…
We are so pleased to announce Aaron Fisher as our Mini Acts With a Mighty Impact contest winner. Mr. Fisher is the director of the Blessings of Hope food distribution ministry in Ephrata, Pa. In 2013, Blessings of Hope distributed over 3 million pounds of food to the needy families in its community. Every week, Mr. Fisher and his crew of volunteers distribute around 600 boxes of food to these families. They also supply approximately 75 other food banks with food to empower them to reach out into their communities as well.
As our contest winner, Mr. Fisher received a $1000 gift card furnished by American Express® and a $1000 donation made to the charity of his choice. In addition, the person who initially nominated Mr. Fisher in the Mini Acts With a Mighty Impact contest will also receive a $250 gift card and a $500 donation to the charity of his choice.
A few of us were lucky enough to be able to visit Mr. Fisher at Blessings of Hope and were amazed to see first-hand the work that is being done. Blessings of Hope is truly making a mighty difference in the community every day. As we mentioned in our last blog post, “Caring for other people is the purpose of Auntie Anne’s.” We are proud to support Aaron Fisher and his volunteers at Blessings of Hope who carry the spirit of giving with them each and every day.
