Donors Made Impact

Editor, News-Register:

I want to express sincere gratitude to all who helped make the recent Neighbors Helping Neighbors Annual Food Drive 2018 a success.

There are 16 local agencies on my distribution list. Every year I pray about the drive, worried that there will not be enough food to deliver to all of them. Then every year, generous and kindhearted community members step up and the donations come in. Without all of you, the drive would not have been a success this year or any other.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all the companies, schools, groups, and individuals, who collected and donated food items or made monetary donations. Thank you as well to Riesbeck’s Elm Grove for being such a great partner and once again running an in-store drive all of November.

While making deliveries, I get to experience the gratitude of the agencies served as well as some of their clients. It does not seem fair that you do not get to see this, but I want you to know that you made a wonderful impact on so many lives.

Thank you so much!
