From the Director-January 2015

Happy New Year to everybody.
The food pantry can finally take a breather. It has been a whirlwind of activity for the last 2 months. I don’t even know where to start with all of the Thank Yous.
1. All of the Muskego Norway schools from the 4K to the high school all had food drives and donated money to help us keep going during the holidays
2. Muskego Area churches that donated food and money for our families to have a Merrier Christmas
3. Muskego Area businesses who held food drives, donated money and also donated to the food pantry rather than having employee holiday parties
4. Muskego Area citizens who stepped up and donated food during the 2 month “Food for Families” campaign.
5. People who were very generous during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
6. Jason Stark who put up “Lights on Glen Cove.” Over 5 van loads of food were donated along with over $4000.00 in cash.
7. The people who enjoyed the light show and donated to the food pantry.
8. Jason’s neighbors who put up with all the traffic and hub bub during the holidays so that so many in the Muskego area could be helped.

I know that I have probably forgotten someone, for that I am extremely sorry.
Keep us in mind when you do your grocery shopping. You can put your purchases in any barrel or we are open every Thursday from 9am until 6pm for donations and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 9 until noon.

Thank you for your generosity.

Julie
