We collected 1490 pounds of food from our neighbors’ porches, from our new box at the Breakaway restaurant and from a donation at the 501 Pharmacy! Han, the owner at 501, was thrilled to have a collection at his store.
We collected $230 in donations between the Great Meadow Picnic (sponsored by Eamon Breen) and individual donations. Some people donate money through the CORA food pantry website or PORCH website. CORA and PORCH are working on a way for us to identify those monetary donations coming from the Briar Chapel area. Let me know of your donation directly, if you please.
I picked up some new signs from the PORCH head office yesterday. I will deliver them to those of you who offered to post a sign in your yard.
Thank you to our wonderful neighbors and wonderful volunteers! It was fun!
