Thank­ful for food drive sup­port

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

On be­half of Boy Scout Troop 1321, I want to thank the man­ager, Mr. David Hanna, the staff and the cus­tomers of the La Plata Gi­ant for sup­port­ing our food drive on Dec. 11, which ben­e­fited both the Christ Church food pantry in La Plata and the Life Point Church food pantry in Waldorf.

Due to the gen­eros­ity of many cus­tomers, we col­lected 2,500 pounds of non-per­ish­able food items and re­ceived over $200 in cash do­na­tions for ad­di­tional food item pur­chases. These food pantries serve many fam­i­lies and meet a tremen­dous need in our lo­cal com­mu­nity. The gen­er­ous spirit demon­strated by the man­age­ment, staff and cus­tomers of the La Plata Gi­ant will go a long way in help­ing to lessen the strug­gle of lo­cal fam­i­lies to ob­tain ad­e­quate food.
