We would like to thank you all for your efforts and generosity you have shown to our families in our local community. Last year, we had a goal of collecting 50 complete meals for a 4-6 person family. Thanks to the efforts of our donors we collected 74 complete meals. Our goal this annual Thanks for Giving Food Drive was to collect and be able to distribute meals to feed 100 families. Instead due to all your wonderful donations, we were able to collect 163 meals for our local families.
We are so thankful to all our partners, Wpromote, Pann’s Restaurant, Food 4 Less, Panera Bread, Genetics Center, and the Charles Drew University (CDU). Together they made up more than half of all the donations we received. We also want to recognize the efforts of our staff, board members, and local donors for all the effort, time, and items donated to help these families.
Last Tuesday and Wednesday, we happily gave out the meals our families and we would like to share their appreciation with you all. Please be sure to head over to our Event Gallery, where you can find the families that received a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. You can also see our Drew CDC staff volunteers who helped make this event a success. Be sure to follow Drew CDC during this holiday season, as we will be having our annual Toy Drive in December. Thank you all and we hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
