Thank you Bangor Savings Bank for your continued support in our community!


PARTNERSHIP FOOD PANTRY THANKS VOLUNTEERS

 

Al Hunt, Partnership Food Pantry, Guilford, thanks 20+ volunteers who work their hearts out to provide food for families twice a month. They serve as many families as any pantry within 50 miles and more than most.

 

These photos show part of the 6,000 pounds of bakery and produce just received. We'll add a couple thousand pounds of staple foods and about 130 families will each get more than 60 pounds of food. And, they'll do it again in a couple of weeks.

None of this includes the Greenville distribution, by the way, or the thousands of backpacks Kiwanis does year in and year out.
"Blowing our own horn" has never been our style. But, these dedicated volunteers deserve more recognition than they get for their service to the community.
 
Thanks,

"Feeding hungry people is important in the short run, but in the long run you've got to realize that powerful forces are creating those hungry people. Those people don't just choose to starve. Our job is to look at those forces and deal with them." - Harry Chapin
