        Does anyone know if this is a donation thing like Red Cross does where you text to donate money or are we texting and they just donate the food?

    Do you know when this will expire? Would like to get some more people to do it.

        • MEP

          The campaign ended March 12, 2015 when the maximum cap donation of $225,000 was reached.

          • Kim

            You should read the link posted and the rest of the comments this is a yearly campaign that goes on every year.

            • Kim

              Since 2011!!! It’s doesn’t expire until March 31, 2016 and you can put the codes from SAMs specially marked boxes that they are selling right now until Jan 2017. Please read the link Collin posted before trying to discredit her. It links to the exp dates and the follow through to enter SAMs codes.

    • Karen

      Or Florida?!

      I’m right outside Marion in Hendricks County!

    Thanks. Sent mine to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

    • Delanda Jo

      ?

      • riss

        I went snopes.com and it says there that donation by Sam’s Club was capped off in March 2015 and texting does not trigger donations anymore. (?)

        • Delanda Jo

          Okay. Thank you

    • Kim

      It seems like a yearly thing if you go through Collins link it is now running through March 31, 2016 for text and Jan 2017 to enter codes from specially marked boxes. Text sent!!

    • Rebe

      Those posting about snopes.com, please read the whole post, it clearly says to txt Hunger:

      “On 29 February 2016, we contacted Sam’s Club to determine whether the drive was active for 2016. A representative for Sam’s Club told us:
      Thanks for asking … Yes, we are teaming up with General Mills and Feeding America to Outnumber Hunger in 2016. Our goal is to provide 2 million meals to Feeding America to make an impact on local food banks in your community. Members can help secure 12 meals in 3 simple ways. Enter Codes found on Specially Marked Outnumber Hunger items at OutnumberHunger.com/SamsClub. Text “Hunger” to 35350.”

    The campaign ended March 12, 2015 when Sam’s Club had reached the stated cap of maximum donations of $225,000 for text-based donations, so texts sent to 35350 after that date no longer trigger food bank contributions.

    • Leigh

      This is a new campaign. You can go to Feeding America’s FB page and you will see they just posted about it a week ago. It says text by 3/31/16

  30. jhlmom

    I texted. Do you get a reply? Thanks!

    • Yoli

      Yes you get a reply asking for your zip to localize your donation. So that the meals can go to your local food bank and such.

      • jhlmom

        I haven’t received a reply… I even retexted in all caps. Any advice?
