FEED A FAMILY’S 2015 Community Thanksgiving Food Program was a wonderful and ongoing success!
The generosity of all who participated, from bringing a can or two for a school food drive, to Turkey Tag Family Boxes filled, to many volunteer deliverers, is a sight to behold! We received a record amount of School Food Drive Donations. This helped us supplement some family boxes, giving extra to large families and all leftovers have been shared between eight local churches. We helped two other groups fill their needs for Thanksgiving. And, three groups that gave out Christmas baskets benefitted from the bounty received!
FEED A FAMILY delivered abundant boxes of food and frozen turkeys to 440 families from Kent Island to Centreville. Fourteen Churches and Twelve Businesses displaying tags, Nine Schools and Two Churches doing food drives, hundreds of volunteers filling tags, organizing and delivering and the yearly donation of EbbTide Tent & Party, Victory Packaging, Lowery’s Fresh Produce, Farmer Johns, RJH Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Services, Douglas Development, The Narrows Restaurant and the gift of bread from KIVFD Women’s Auxiliary and Wye of Carmichael UMC, makes “Loving Your Neighbor” a great community event. So, thanks again from the FEED A FAMILY TEAM and we wish you a Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year!
