Last week, we put the word out that our food pantry had gone over budget for the month of May by $10,360. In the time since then -- through this blog, our twitter feed, and email newsletter (to which you can subscribe by emailing us) -- we raised $11,500!
Awesome. And we're thrilled to announce that we'll soon have an opportunity to celebrate with you.
On July 16th at 6:30pm, at our Northwest Center (1525 7th Street), we're hosting our Second Annual Parking Lot Picnic.
Bread for the City staff, clients, volunteers, donors, and neighbors will join together for an evening of food and conversation. Food Pantry Director Ted Pringle will be working the grill, and Executive Director George Jones will share some highlights from this year and our big plans for next year.
Please join us. And please think for a moment about your friends and loved ones who would also like to learn about the work we do - invite them too!
You can RSVP for this event by email, or on Facebook.
As a fantastic final note of thanks for your outpouring of support, my staff has encouraged me to close this fundraising campaign off with some music that befits the triumphant occasion.
