Every year the food bank works hard to find donations to help feed those in need within the community. We also work just as hard to collect and stash away toys, household items, toiletries, clothing and more. Then the 3-4 days before Christmas the food bank opens it doors and hearts to those in need of food and holiday cheer by providing holiday meals and gifts that families can put under their Christmas tree.
It's a tradition at the food bank that we treasure and every year we feel blessed by all the support our volunteers and donors give us. Workers and volunteers bring smiles and joy to children by handing out toys and receive tearful thank yous from the parents as they are given a holiday box of food. It makes all the hard work that lead up to the holiday season worth it! So thank you to all the food bank volunteers that help to make the food bank a success every day! And thank you to the donors for the support, food, toys and more that help people in our community, your gift is truly special!
We work hard, but it sure is worth it!
