Enclosed is an unofficial receipt for $500.00 received in October from our first visit to the Program. We are so very grateful, as receiving cash permits us to keep the Food Bank running successfully, as well as being able to purchase food and other items which are needed but not always donated. This year we have noticed an increase in the number of clients needing assistance and such a generous monetary donation will help tremendously. Please express our thanks to all members of the Association. Yours sincerely, Gwen Christie, Secretary”
