Hundreds of local families will be giving thanks for months to come because of you
It took just a few weeks and an estimated 30,000+ pounds of food items were donated to Tabitha’s Way Food Pantry.
Food drives were held by local schools and organizations such as Diamond Fork Jr., Spanish Fork Jr., Maple Mountain High, Cherry Creek, Canyon, East Meadows, Spanish Oaks, and Foothills Elementary Schools along with the Spanish Fork Library. My eyes and those at Tabitha’s are widened with amazement at what some of these kids have accomplished in such a short amount of time!
Although thousands of pounds of food was gathered by each school and organization, we would like to extend a special note of recognition to Diamond Fork Jr. High School for gathering the most food plus collecting over $4,000 dollars in funds to purchase additional food supplies. This year we had 60 more families than the year prior that were in need of a Turkey. Diamond Fork Jr. High stepped in and used a portion of the money they raised to purchase turkeys for these families and insure that they had all that was needed to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday.
To everyone who has supported our cause and donated food, time, money and supplies; I want to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude. I am honored to see and be a part of this community’s tradition of generosity. As the families we serve express their appreciation, I know that the “thanks” actually belongs to God and to you. May God bless you for helping to put meals on the table for these struggling families and for letting me witness LOVE in action every day.
