2018 Shine the Light on Hunger Campaign

Bookmark and Share

Thanks to all of you who came to the Lighted Christmas Balls (LCB) workshop, put up LCB, helped other neighbors put up LCB, who helped light up the park, walked or walked or helped with the Running of the Balls,  dropped food and dollars off for the Shine The Light on Hunger food drive and those tireless volunteers who sorted packed and drove the 5 tons of food to the food pantries.  

We will leave the trailer up at the corner of Madison Ave and Ridgeway through this week so if you have been meaning to clean out your pantries or swing by Costco to get some canned food to add to the trailer, we still have room for it.  

Thanks - we love living in this neighborhood just because of neighbors like you.
Anne and Jonathan Smith

Our totals so far for 2018:
10,329 pounds of food
