The Pagan Pride Projectis a global non-profit organization dedicated to the elimination of prejudice and religious discrimination through education, activism, charity and community. Pagan Pride Project global event attendance has broken records every year, with nearly 50,000 people attending Pagan Pride events in six countries. Pagan Pride attendees have donated thousand pounds of food and goods to local food banks, women's shelters, animal shelters and other charities. In addition to the material collections, Pagan Pride events also raised thousands of dollars in cash donations for local and regional charitable causes.
Over the past 10+ years, Pagan Pride attendees have donated several tons of food to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
In 2009 alone, you helped raise over a TON of food!
"We just picked up the donations today, and we are so appreciative of the outpouring of generosity of the festival ... the total of the food donations is 2,007 pounds!
We estimate the average weight of a meal is 1.3 pounds, so the attendees donated approximately 1,544 meals to the residents of the Merrimack Valley."
