Dear FCC Deacons and Members,
Thank you so very much for donating Christmas meal baskets for our clients in need.
Your generous donations provided all the fixings for a festive meal and a gift card for each family to purchase their choice of turkey, etc. Many church members also helped us assemble the meal baskets at the pantry – gladly sharing their time and good Christmas Cheer! In addition, the Giving Tree set up by Helen and the CE folks provided many gift for our clients’ children who would otherwise have gone without. The amount of support you are able to provide to our agency and many others, besides – is truly a wonderful thing! Your donations made a difference to our organization, and we appreciate your support.
It was wonderful to see the reaction of the clients when they came in on distribution day to pick up their basket, gift card and children’s gifts. Folks were very thankful to receive the makings of a nice meal to share with their loved ones and gifts to put under the tree!
The East Bay Food Pantry serves over 1,200 families representing more than 3,800 individuals in the East Bay area struggling to put food on their tables. EBFP is run by a small staff and many dedicated volunteers who strive to alleviate hunger in the East Bay. We rely on ongoing support from community members and organizations who value making a difference in the lives of others.
With Great Thanks,
Anita K. Randall
THE BOARD OF DEACONS ALSO THANKS THE CONGREGATION FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF THIS IMPORTANT MISSION!
