CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri Food Bank officials say without help, they will lose their tax credits at the end of March.
According to the food bank, they have $154,000 in tax credits that must be used or the charity will lose funding.
Officials say donors can get a Missouri income tax cut for 50-percent of the value of their donation, and other tax benefits may apply based on the actual tax liability of the donor.
The funds are expected to be used to expand a warehouse facility.

Donors eligible to take part in the NAP credit program include:
