"Food Bank Collection"
by Club Members
Monday, April 15, 6:30 PM- 7:30 PM
This will be our fifth year collecting food for the families of the Lynn Community. We are still working out details but assume the food will be delivered to the St. Stephenâ€™s Church for distribution. This once a year project is a worthwhile endeavor for our GLPA and its members. As a nonprofit organization we need to perform activities like this to help us maintain our nonprofit status for taxes and donations made to the club.
In this time of uncertain finances for many families it has become difficult to keep food on the table. Food banks are finding that more and more families are relying on them for a weekly bag or two of groceries. The Board of Directors is asking members to bring two or more non-perishable items of food with them to the April 15th Monday night meeting. Our program that night will be an excellent teaching presentation by Roman Kurywczak, ANEC of NJ on 'Photographing Wildlife-From Portraits to Flight'.
The BOD would like to thank David Kourtz very much for his help with the logistics of this endeavor. Dave will make the necessary contacts with the church, bring boxes for the collection, and is arranging for a group of members to pack up your donations on Tuesday morning and deliver them to the church. Our thanks also to Ken Jordan, MNEC, who always volunteers his services each year to help with the delivery, and to Marilyn Cloran who acts as a liaison with the church and David if needed.
We will announce later this month what the church is specifically in need of for food donations. We will have boxes on the tables in the back hall where you can place your donations. Please be generous and help out with this worthy cause.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with me.
