On behalf of all of us at 40 West and the Outreach Committee, THANK YOU to all who delivered brown grocery bags and flyers in the neighborhood last week and all who helped to publicize the event, the drivers and pick up helpers, the 40 West office volunteers and Board Members and our Director and volunteers helping to sort and store the food! A Special Thank You is for Kim Flash and David Mountain, co-chairs of the Outreach Committee, and to Charles Flexner for coordinating the event! We are so thankful and grateful that we are so blessed by your giving spirits!
On Thursday, April 2, 40 West held a food distribution in the parking lot near our offices. We were able to give away 291 bags of food to 97 persons! Each person received 21 pounds of food – that’s a total of 2,037 pounds of food! Thanks to all our volunteers who helped pack and give out the food! I know it meant a lot to all those needing food at this difficult time as we are dealing with the effects of the COVID 19 virus.
