Common Heart is dedicating all our resources to continue to serve our community. We are focusing our service during this time of greater need on our food pantry programs. The immediate needs of the food insecure in our community has increased as the response to contain the Coronavirus continues to impact our daily lives. We are responding to that need.
Last Saturday, folks from around the area brought food to the food and fund drive at Common Heart. Thanks for providing an essential need for our neighbors.
This past week, 60 volunteers worked individually or in small groups. Over 150 people have donated food and funds.
Together, since our last email, we made sure this that 180 families, our neighbors, received a week's worth of groceries. We are preparing to serve 100 more tomorrow!
Together, we collected over 3,000 pounds of food for our community in a time of increased need.
Together, we are showing strength through selfless service.
Together, we are a small revolution of kindness.
Thank you! Even in the midst of this crisis and in the midst of uncertainty, this community is pulling together, loving our neighbors.
We are also needing healthy, not at risk individuals, to help by being a backup for several key volunteer roles weekday and Saturday mornings. To help out as a backup person to deliver groceries to a family or pick up grocery donations, please contact Volunteer@CommonHeart.org.
Our goal is to keep all our pantry programs functioning throughout the crisis. You can find a list of our pantry programs at TEFAP.CommonHeart.org
Thanks for your concern for our neighbors as we as a community continue to provide for the most vulnerable in our county.
