Help Stock Shelves

The needs of our local food pantries’ are multiplying each week. In addition, the challenges of online ordering are increasing the necessity for physical donations to keep these vital programs going. We are asking you to share what you can with our fellow organizations to ensure no children or adults go hungry.

For your convenience, there is a donation box outside of The Connection’s entrance and we will make the respective deliveries. Or if you prefer, you can donate directly to these organizations. The details are included below.

Please forward this email to neighbors and friends who may be in a position to help. Thank you for your crucial support of our community.
