A big Share Food Share Love thank you goes out today to our friends in the Loyola University Medical Center Radiology Department Team for their very generous donation of food, books and money to the Pantry. We can't thank these folks enough for their effort and for their generosity! We are going to be able to feed a lot of hungry people because they took the time to help those in need. So on behalf of the Food Pantry and its clients, thank you so much!
We would like to extend a very special thank you to the Brookfield Letter Carriers for conducting their annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive and to everyone who came to the Pantry and helped us carry, sort and shelve the amazing amount of food we received! Your help was greatly appreciated and the massive amount of food is going to be a great benefit to our clients. You're all aces in our book!
On Saturday May 12, local Letter Carriers will be participating in their annual Stamp Out Hunger food collection. They will pick up food donations from residents while on their mail routes and will then bring those donations to local food pantries. We are fortunate to be one of the pantries that the Brookfield Letter Carriers have chosen. As a result, beginning at approximately 12:00 pm on May 12, the Letter Carriers will begin dropping their collections at our Pantry. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in helping us process those donations, we would sincerely appreciate any assistance. Even if you can only come for a short time, please consider coming by. If you are physically unable to help carry or move donations, much of the food will need to have its expiration date checked so we have something for everyone to do! We will have volunteers at the Pantry from 12:00 pm to approximately 6:00 pm so you can come anytime that works for you. Thank you for your consideration and we hope to see you on May 12!
