A note of thanks

SoVaNow.com / December 04, 2013

Dear Viewpoint:

As the Coordinator of the Clarksville Food Pantry, one of my jobs is to thank our donors for the gifts which they give us, and this time of Thanksgiving is a perfect time to do so.

Food which we give out gets to as many as 500 people each month. That is over 5,000 people every year. On behalf of the folks that work at the Food Pantry, and especially on behalf of those we serve, let me take this opportunity to express our appreciation for all of the donations, which we received this year.

There have been many donations all year long. Some were large and some were small. Some came from churches, some from businesses, some came from organizations. We are grateful for all of them.

Maybe you gave us food to go on the shelves, maybe you donated your time to get us the food, or dropped it off, or maybe you are one of the volunteers who helps to collect it or give it out. Thank you. If you worked at the Community Garden to help grow food for us, or you donated venison to Hunters for the Hungry, thank you. If you sent us a check, or gave a few dollars to someone else for a group donation — thank you. I may have sent you a thank you card earlier, or your name may have never gotten to me. Either way —thank you!

We appreciate your support and hope to continue to earn it in the future. God bless you.
Clarksville Food Pantry,
Donald Koch, Coordinator
