Townsend Ecumenical Outreach wants to thank all those that helped support us over the past year and during the busy holiday season.
From the local schools, Scout troops, churches, businesses and residents that donated food, clothing, Christmas gifts for our Santa Project, financial support and their time.
One local resident, Chris Puglia, who created the Christmas in Townsend light display at his home on Pierce Road, donated more than 1,000 pounds of food
Hannaford, with the "Helping Hands" holiday food boxes that so many of their shoppers purchased for us, distributed more than 170 boxes during November and December.
Special thanks to the Sterilite Corporation for their ongoing and generous support.
Due to all this help, we were able to serve approximately 80 households per month, with the holidays seeing close to 100 households participating in our program.
Numbers for the year: We served a total of 1,889 participants, 30 percent children, 47 percent adults and 23 percent seniors. Over one thousand boxes of food were distributed.
All this would not be possible without the continued support of our wonderful group of TEO volunteers.
Our sincere thanks to all and our wishes go out to each and every one of you for a happy and healthy new year!
