As we move forward into the New Year, we would like to pause to show our appreciation to a few of our faithful community donors for their generous support during the months of November and December.
Thank you to Mayor Ritenauer for once again remembering the Co-op when his office donated large frozen turkeys throughout the community. Thirty turkeys were donated to the Co-op, which provided special holiday dinners at several of the Hot Meals and were also given to large families at the Food Pantries for special dinners of their own.
Thank you to St. Paul Lutheran Hunger Ministry, who held their November Craft Sunday Hunger Drive to support the Co-op. Craft Sunday proceeds, along with a generous Christmas gift, were graciously donated to help us continue our ministry.
Thank you to Martino’s International Café for holding a “Dine To Donate” day on Tuesday, December 8. On that day, 20% of all the sales from patrons who presented our flyer when they dined were given to the Co-op....
Our Van Go Campaign is in full swing. To date we have raised approimately $19,000.00 toward our $35,000 goal. We would love to reach our goal before the end of the year.
Here are a few statistics about how the van is used in our ministy:
We deliver over 400 tons of food from Second Harvest Food Bank to our local Co-op churches that provide hot meals and choice food pantries for more than 40,000 residents annually. That's helping a lot of hungry neighbors! Our present van is 14 yrs old, has traveled over 100,000 miles and is presently having some serious exhaust and rust issues, with potential transmission issues.
