With the 2011 New Year well under way, I'd like to once again express my deepest thanks for your support over the holidays.
Your gift over the holiday season made a tremendous difference in the lives of so many in the twilight weeks of 2010. Thousands of families were able to sit down to a table filled with nourishing dishes and give thanks for the comfort of a wholesome meal. Children, with warm, full bellies, rested easily; seniors and parents had one less worry on their minds.
Our partner agencies were able to feed a record number of folks in need - over 7 million pounds of food was provided to the community in November and December. Turkeys, cabbage, eggs, fresh and frozen vegetables, sweet potatoes and beans were just a few of the wonderful foods the Food Bank provided - thanks to you!
