~ Jeremiah's Inn 20th Annual Food Drive ~
Monday July 7 - Saturday July 12, 2014
Price Chopper ~ Cambridge Street Worcester, MA
The Annual Food Drive is an event critical to the success and continued operation of Jeremiah's Inn's Emergency Food Pantry. The purpose of the event is to raise friends, funds and food donations to support the food distribution operation which helps to annually feed over 12,000 individuals representing nearly 6,000 households residing in South Worcester. We hold the food drive in July each year to not only replenish our food supply but more importantly, to raise awareness about hunger in our community at a particularly challenging time of year. Most people think about "giving" during the holidays, but in the heat of summer while many are on vacation or otherwise enjoying the beautiful weather, holiday parties, picnics and outings there are many, many more of our friends, family members and neighbors who simply can't make ends meet. Now that children are home from school on summer break families who already struggle to pay the bills and put food on the table have to come up with the means to feed their children breakfast and lunch - meals often consumed for free or reduced cost at school. Too often care takers must make a choice - pay the bills or feed their children or go without eating so their child doesn't go to bed hungry. Through the support of our gracious sponsors and donors such as yourself we are able to do our part to make life a little easier for those less fortunate this summer and throughout the year. Our sponsors have done their part through financial or in-kind support of the 20th Annual Food Drive.
Please stop by and see us outside Price Chopper - 50 Cambridge Street - Worcester, MA 01603 between 8am - 6 pm Monday July 7 - Saturday July 12 to do your part with a donation.
We look forward to seeing you!
