RE: Winter Food & Funds Drive
Dear Neptune Swimming:
Thank you for making a difference in our community. Your efforts collected 776 pounds of food, which allows the Redwood Empire Food Bank to distribute the food necessary to provide 611 meals to our neighbors in need. On behalf of the children, families and senior who turn to the REFB for food assistance. Thank You!
Nearly 1 in 5 people face food insecurity in Sonoma County. Your donation has proven that you are a community champion for hunger relief efforts and helped to ensure that our neighbors in need, especially children, are not going hungry this winter season.
78,000 people are standing in food distribution lines across the county each month. The contributions from your drive not only provide critical food assistance for the hungry, but also restore hope, dignity and respect to our neighbors who suffer from the effect of hunger.
As the leader in hunger relief in Sonoma County, we serve vulnerable populations, build community partnerships, serve as major food provider, educate the public and advocate for effective hunger relief public policy. Your generosity is vital in helping us fulfill our mission.
Thank you for you do to help end hunger in our community.
