Recently we put out an appeal for food. We found we are unable to order food from grocers as they are having problems stocking their shelves. We had a huge response from those we contacted and we cannot thank you enough. With your help, we now have enough food for April. We are taking this one month at a time. But be assured we are staying open to help those in need during this critical time. The need is great. We are seeing a large number of new clients in March and expect this to continue in April due to the unemployment situation.
