Editor, The Times:
Clearwater and District Food Bank continues to provide assistance to needy individuals and families. In 2008 it provided approximately 33 hampers per month. In 2009 we provided approximately 45 hampers per month. Last year (2012) the demand increased to over 70 hampers per month. This year so far we have provided 75+ hampers per month.
The demand has been continuously increasing and the generosity and thoughtfulness of the Clearwater and district citizens has assisted us in meeting these needs.
The Food Bank extends a big thank-you to all who attended and supported the “Sale to Die For” at the North Thompson Funeral Service parking lot May 4. You made the event a success.
The Food Bank will conduct its sixth annual mid-season drive for non-perishable goods, sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, on June 4 and 8. Donation bags will be delivered to homes in Clearwater and district on June 4 with instructions and a list of needed items. Donations will be picked-up on the morning of June 8.
Look for the Clearwater and District Food Bank thank-you float in the May Day parade May 18.
