 January 4, 2018

What a wonderful year we have had for 2017.

Our numbers are in: We packaged 2,312 lbs. of food, 510 personal need bags and filled 4 Christmas boxes and 6 Flood buckets and donated 10 packages of “undies” to Rouzie UMC.

I’m enclosing a recap of the previous 4 years (we did not keep records for our 1st year). Even through our numbers are down from the previous years we were able to meet all the needs requested by WHEAT, MCEF and ACES. They all remained fully stocked for the entire year. We only had 8 packing meetings this year due to various reasons (sickness, extremely hot weather and working on our bird feeders/houses for our upcoming fundraiser).

It’s just amazing to me that we are going into our 6th year. We have packaged and distributed 10,174 lbs. of food, 1975 personal need bags and done various other volunteer activities. We once again filled elementary school “give away” bags for Hanover County Public Schools and had a booth at the Hanover County Fall Festival held be the sheriff’s department.

All of this has been accomplished by each and every member’s hard work and dedication and by the financial and spiritual support of Rouzie UMC, WHEAT and various individuals who have been touched by our organization and made substantial monetary donations in memory of loved ones. We also received 473 lbs. of donated food which helped keep our cost down.

My personal thanks to all the parents who donate so much of their time in transporting members, making copies of cooking instructions, providing food for meetings, helping me with picking up the supplies, helping in setting up the meetings and for the talents of several parents who donated their time in making our bird feeders and houses.  I could not do it without all of your help.

We’ve had some members who have not been able to attend regularly but have also had new members join us. My goal this year is to add another food bank to our list and find more volunteering activities for our group to participate in the community. As always, I would love some suggestions.

I’m looking forward to our 6th year (2018).  Get ready for the “big” fundraiser.

We are truly blessed.
