Last week was Food for Thought's 2nd Annual "Stock the Pantry" Party to celebrate going back to school. The Nathan Abbott Team sponsored the event by participating in the food drive and collected over 1,400 food items! The party was well attended and a huge success, there were piles of food donated by several local companies, clubs and organizations.
We are proud to be involved with Food for Thought, a local organization that provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. We volunteer with Food for Thought throughout the year, monthly we go to the pantry and help stuff backpacks. They are always in need of donations and volunteers, there is a volunteer outreach event planned tomorrow night click here for more information.
