Helping in Our Community Throughout 2015
At our December meeting, 2015 YP Chair Allison Beers asked everyone to bring in nonperishable food items or a monetary donation to go to a food pantry in our region. YPs Josh Janowiak and Courtney Sorrell dropped the food off at the Father Fred Foundation after the meeting, and the folks at Father Fred (Mary, Tab, and Anne in the photo) gave them a tour of the facility.
Our donation was so successful that the YPs unanimously decided to donate to food pantries throughout 2015! If you attend one of the monthly meetings at the Chamber this next year, please bring along a nonperishable food item (or two!) that Josh and Courtney will drop off at a regional pantry after the meeting. It's the easiest way to help those in our community all year long!
