It seems that every day I am filled with gratefulness for the supportive community in which Foundation 2 is located. There are several business and organizations (Linn County IDPA, Old Navy, Yellowbook and the Gazette) that have either held food drives for us, or are in the process of collecting food for our organization. These donations are coming at a great time. The business at our food pantry seems to increase every month. The Foundation 2 After Hours Food Pantry served 417 clients during the month of September! It seems like as soon as our pantry starts to become low on supplies, I receive a call from another organization interested in supporting us and the clients that we serve, and for this I am grateful.
I would also like to give a shout out to the Prairiewoods Knitters and Stitchers, who donated handmade items including hats, scarves and mittens. We are happy to have beautiful, warm items to distribute Foundation 2 clients.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I feel that this is a time to reflect upon gratitude. I want to thank the friends of Foundation 2 for the support (through volunteering, donations or words of encouragement) that you have provided to our agency. We couldn’t make the impact that we do on the lives of those we serve without you.
