Hello! This is the Needy Basket report for July 2019. In June, the Needy Basket distributed food and related household items to 98 families including 105 children, 48 senior citizens, and 147 adults; that's 300 people! Also during June, we received over 4,600 lbs of donated food. Individuals donated about 155 lbs, churches about 90 lbs, and businesses about 4,350 lbs of food. Thanks to Flying J, Pizza Hut, and Bob Evans for their generous support!


Overall, July has been relatively quiet except for this shout out to the United Way of Miami County for their recent grant supporting our Emergency Food Program! Also, thanks to the United Way for making the Needy Basket their most recent Agency of the Week! Each day this week the United Way posts an input about us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The links are: www.facebook.com/unitedwayMCO; www.instagram.com/unitedwayMCO; and https://twitter.com/unitedwayMCO. The United Way also posts the inputs in the news section of their website: https://unitedwayMCO.org/news-events. Check out the websites to learn more about us and the many other charitable organizations that make this a great area to live in. As always, thanks to our many volunteers and supporters for their time and resources! We and the clients we serve certainly appreciate it. Thank you!
