Next OVGH Food Drive Offers Up DOUBLE the Giving Opportunity!
Our last food drive for the FOR was a Huge success!!
But our next Food Drive from April 14th-18th has the opportunity to give so much more.
ALL Food and Financial Donations made to the Focus On Renewal Food Pantry this month will help the agency earn grant money from The Feinstein Foundation. Every item we collect=$1 to the FOR Food Bank!!
Thanks to your efforts last time, we collected:
-Almost 110 cans of food (including 25 cans of tuna fish!)
-90 boxes of pasta and rice
-25 jars of peanut butter and jelly
-20 rolls of toilet paper
…along with baby food, cat food, crackers, juices, toiletry items…and much more!
That would have given the Food Bank almost $350 dollars in ADDITION to what we donated!
Need a few more reasons on why you should donate? How about….685 of them?
That’s the number of families you can help by donating a non-perishable item during our Focus On Renewal Food Drive.
With about a third of those families coming in for supplies every month, the food bank goes through about 6,000 pounds of food. While most food banks are open on a distribution day each month, the FOR Food Bank opens Monday through Friday from 8am-5pm. That means they don’t only help those registered families, but they’re available when a family loses heat, or a fire takes them out of their home.The immediacy with which they are able to react in those emergency situations only increases the number of supplies needed to successfully help others.
Here’s a sample of some much-needed items:
Hamburger Helper/Tuna Helper
Macaroni and Cheese
Tuna Fish cans
Toiletry Items; especially travel size
You can drop off your donations in the boxes provided by the Hospital Cafeteria, in the Main Lobby, and in the Medical Office Building’s Main Lobby!
