Holiday Donations From DWD
Posted on Friday, December 21, 2012
DWD presented two organizations with holiday donations this year. Our first stop was at Associated Churches. This organization offers families food once a month at no charge through a network of 28 local food pantries in churches and other social agencies. Associated Churches Neighborhood Food Network is considered an "emergency food bank." Their pantries provide a five-day supply of food to prepare balanced and nutritious meals.
The second stop we made was at Community Harvest Food Bank. Like Associated Churches, Community Harvest Food Bank (CHFB) was very grateful for our donation as well. CHFB works with a network of food donors, social service organizations and churches to provide food to hungry people in its nine county service area. Do you know they provide over 11 million pounds of food annually to those in the northeast corner of Indiana? That is a lot of food!
In addition to the donations from DWD, our staff internally raised nearly $1,200 and was able to adopt 3 families through Vincent Village. This organization provides shelter and affordable housing to homeless families in addition to their care and supportive resources to help them become independent and self-sustaining.
