10TH ANNUAL CANS FOR A CAUSE FOOD DRIVE – THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2023
It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since we started our first Cans for a Cause Food Drive, and each and every year we been so humbled by the generous outpouring of love in our community.
We still have friends and neighbors in need, and those numbers have increased, as has the cost for food for all of us. We are so grateful to you for helping us each and every year, and to be able to bring this service to the community that we live in and work in.
Thank you for helping us to fill the hearts and the kitchens of our clients through the holidays and beyond as we “Tackle Hunger”
