Hello! This is the Needy Basket report for May 2019. In April, the Needy Basket distributed about 32,000 lbs of food and related household items to 112 families including 119 children, 61 senior citizens, and 178 adults. Also during April, we received  over 1,600 lbs of donated food. Individuals donated about 350 lbs, churches about 150 lbs, and businesses about 1,100 lbs of food. Thanks to all who donated and volunteered their time to help others.

 

Overall, things were relatively quiet at the Pantry in April; however, May was busier! The Needy Basket fund drive kicked off and donations have been arriving daily. We'll report on the totals next month. In other news, the Needy Basket was selected as the quarterly “Give Where You Live” charity recipient. Thanks to the many community spirited participants who help local charities through this program. Also, many thanks to  all of our volunteers and donors for helping, in many small and large ways, those in need during April and May!
