I sincerely want to thank you all for helping us with the Blitz this past weekend. Once again the logistics of this format went extremely well and made for a very successful campaign. Our total so far, is 48,000 lbs. of food and $6,093.93 and as usual we will continue to count donations until the end of the month towards the Blitz, but this is where we stand right now.
The total amount of food is down from previous years, but the cumulative amount of food donated to us over the whole year remains consistent and growing. The increase of third party collections over the year by different groups and individuals has had a lot to do with that.
This is still a significant collection and we will continue to look forward to it every year. I would like to thank all of the participating stores for letting us set up for the event and to all our amazing volunteers that gave us their valuable time. We couldn’t do this without you. Thanks as well to all our wonderful media partners who helped promote the event. A special thank you as well, to all of the donors who gave from their hearts to those in need in our community.
