Thank you to the community from Pelham Cares!
As a new year begins, we take time to reflect back on the previous year...the generosity of the Pelham Community never ceases to amaze us! To all of our supporters...here are a few words from our President...CLICK below....
The 26th Annual Pelham Community Food Drive - local Service Clubs, over 250 volunteers, hockey teams, businesses, media, The Town of Pelham, and of course those who donated the food...as they say 'it takes a village'...on Saturday this village came together for another successful food drive.
Proceeds of the drive will assist Pelham Cares in providing food hampers to families in our community for many months to come! Thank you for your generosity and support in this season of giving...we could not do it without YOU!
Thank you to the local media for their great coverage! Click below...
On Saturday October 1st, the Diamonds and Denim Barn Dance was held at Bissell's Hideaway. A SOLD OUT fundraising event by Pelham Cares!
150 attendees enjoyed food by Smokin' Buddha and Family of 3 Catering, and entertainment by Tom Bishop Jr., and Elton Lammie and his band. A whiskey tasting, popcorn and candy bar, prize draws and a fantastic Western Penny Sale rounded out the evening!
This evening would not have been the success it was without our sponsors (below), donors, volunteers and staff. The funds raised will support our three programs; Food Bank, Youth Services, and Transportation.
Thank you to all who supported, assisted and of course attended! And stay tuned...for an announcement regarding 2017....will this be an annual event?!
