On behalf of our clients, staff and the board of directors of Pelham Cares, I wanted to thank each of you for helping with our food drive this year. Despite the near constant rain, cold and occasional fog, we were able to collect almost 10,000 lbs of much needed food and a number of monetary donations ( which we are still counting). None of this would have been possible without your help and the generosity of our community.
For those of you that worked at the drive, it was a pleasure chatting with you and I really appreciated your flexibility during each day.
Our retail partners were amazing and the pop up drives at Sobeys and Food Basics really helped. Thanks again to the Kinsmen and Lions for your help with these. Fred and Brad W., please pass along our sincere thanks and appreciation to all the club members.
Thank you also to all the hockey players and scouts who helped with all the ‘heavy lifting.” Kent, Joe and Brad S. please pass along our thanks to all the guys and girls who helped out.
The need for the services of Pelham Cares has never been greater and thanks to you we will be able to continue our mission of helping our fellow residents when they are faced with food security issues.
