Thank You from the Mt. Olive Pantry

Hi All,

I would like to thank all of you for your efforts to help feed the citizens of Mt. Olive who need food assistance. Our clients range from the elderly, the disabled, people with only part-time jobs, single parent families, and those with no jobs.

I also wish to thank the chamber of Commerce and the Kiwanis for sponsoring the fall food drive. It brought in a lot of donations from the area businesses and the local community. To the right is a picture of volunteers sorting it out. It should also be noted that the Kiwanis do regular weekly food pickups around town.

And thank you to CBRE Realty in ITC who were extremely helpful, they donated temporary space that allowed us to accumulate and sort out all the donations received from the fall food drive. This sped up the process, because it gave us a lot of room to work. Included is a picture of us sorting at ITC. What you don’t see are some of the sorted donations in boxes on the other side of the room.

Lastly, because of your work, and God’s blessings, we were also able to hand out the fixings for approximately 75 thanksgiving dinners and 96 Christmas dinners besides the regular monthly allocations.

In the new year, we look forward to our continued association with all of you.

Harry and Rich, would you please forward this email to your groups.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
