On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Staff, and especially the clients at Loaves & Fishes, I would like to express my sincere thanks for the overwhelming support we received from the community during the holiday season. The outpouring of food, financial support and volunteer time allowed us to help many families during the past few months.
Thanks to your efforts, 286 families received all of the fixings for their Thanksgiving celebration and another 233 received Christmas dinner. It took an army of volunteers and donors to make these wonderful events so successful. We are truly fortunate to live in an area which generously supports our neighbors in need.
A grateful client recently stopped by my office with tears in her eyes and told me "You have absolutely no idea how thankful I am for not only the nutritious food, but also the kindness that I receive every time I visit the Pantry."
Our sincere thanks for your continued support and our best to each of you for a happy and healthy new year.
