Once again our dear friends at Ingredion (www.ingredion.com) donated a slew of reusable grocery bags for our clients for the holidays. Not only did they provide the free bags, but they filled them with special items to help our clients have a very happy holiday season.
They did all of this after they had already donated the vegetables they harvested from their employee gardens over the summer!
A big thank you to all of you!
The holiday season is such a busy time at the Pantry. This year we not only did our normal food distributions, but we also distributed holiday dinner bags for both Thanksgiving and Christmas to over 150 of our clients. We also received a surprise donation of more than 150 toys from the Share the Magic Toy Drive (sharethemagictoydrive.org) that we distributed to our clients with children.
We also received countless donations that made all of this possible. Regardless of the size, all donations, whether it was food, cash, toys, hats and mittens, or other things, were all put to good use and were greatly appreciated by our clients. Your generosity made a very happy holiday for hundreds of our neighbors who would not have had one otherwise and for this we are very grateful.
We may not have the opportunity to thank each of you individually in this space or on the donor page of our website, but we are going to try. If we inadvertantly overlook you or your group, please accept our apology and let us know about our error (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The fight against hunger knows no season! We have been very busy already in 2019 and we hope that we can continue to count on your support for the coming year.
Thank you all and we hope that you, your family and everyone who touches your life, enjoys a happy, safe and peaceful 2019.
