Dear Caring Friends,
We want you to know that your help goes a long way in impacting so many lives. There are many instances where we see first-hand how the impact is made. One moment in particular stands out among the rest.
At a recent mobile client choice pantry sponsored by United Healthcare, a woman named Marisela had such a grateful smile on her face as she selected her food. As she received help for her and her husband for the first time, she said she appreciated being treated with respect and dignity. As Marisela gave our team member a hug and went on her way she made sure to say, “This has given us an eye opening experience to know that people are here offering services (help) and you all have showed a lot of kindness through it”.
Please know that each gift you give, every hour you spend volunteering and every food item that is donated makes a lasting impression on those we serve. Marisela is just one of many individuals who depend on the Food Bank and our partner pantries to provide healthy and nutritious food to prepare meals for their families.
Together, we can ensure that no one goes hungry!
Susan E. Goodell
