Good afternoon, everybody – today we served a total of 29 families, including 62 adults, 32 children and 9 seniors.
We’ve got two bins for the pantry at Stop & Shop – one at each entry. People have been caring and generous. Whenever one of us volunteers goes into Stop & Shop we routinely find food and other products waiting for us in the bins. This has been a huge help to us, and most of the items are given out that same week. I’m sure some of those donors are on this list, so a big thanks to all of you.
Our team (Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry/10354) is duly registered for the Feeding Westchester 5K scheduled for Saturday, September 23 from 9:00 to 12:00 at Pace University in Pleasantville. There are six of us on the team so far. Would anybody else like to join us? Or would you like to donate? All donations will be assigned to our food account at Feeding Westchester so that we can order more food for hungry people in the Rivertowns. Let me know if you’d like to participate in one way or another. By the way, I’m one of the team members, and I’m planning on WALKING, not running, in the 5K, even if it takes me all day.
I’d just like to throw out a thank-you to Westchester Milk, who keeps us supplied every Wednesday with milk and eggs. They come so early that we never see them, but the milk and eggs are waiting for us when we arrive. Matt Marone is the CEO, and we thank him heartily for his company’s reliability.
