Dear Neighbors,

The North Hills Food Bank wishes you a very Happy New Year.  We are all hoping that 2021 will slowly become a healthier and more peaceful year.  In spite of the fact that 2020 was a strange, stressful and frightening situation, the volunteers and clients were given many opportunities to experience actions of love, generosity and kindness.  You special neighbors have always been strong supporters of the North Hills Food Bank program.  However, during the COVID virus the community’s response financially, with food and time has been more remarkable than anyone could imagine.  We are in awe of the many people offering and providing help.

We shared so many events that touched our hearts.  Preschool children brought food to us, people sent money and/or food on a monthly and even a weekly basis.  Boy and Girl Scout Troops, school districts and businesses held fund raisers which in one case resulted in a caravan of 15 cars delivering food.  There were various Homeowners Associations and other groups who found creative ways to collect food to donate, many religious institutions gave money and food regularly, delivering delicious produce and gift cards for the clients to enjoy and children who transformed their gift money into a donation for the Food Bank.   

It is difficult to count the number of times your thoughtfulness not only brought tears to our eyes but also made our hearts smile.  Our mission would not be possible without you and your willingness to give.  You are priceless.  Thank you and God bless you.

Gratefully,

Bobbe Grandey
Director, North Hills Food Bank
