Thank you Cryder Point!
Our Thanksgiving Food
Drive Keeps on Giving
BY EILEEN ANNECHINO
Grace Episcopal Church remains thankful for the efforts
of Cryder Point and our food drives. This year, over a three
week period in November, we once again collected food
items for the church’s food pantry. The abundance of donations
could not be contained in our lobbies. As quick as
the boxes were filled they were delivered and refilled again,
and it required Bill Newell to make four separate trips in
his truck to deliver all the food.
The Grace Food Pantry serves a weekly community
meal (during ‘normal’ times), prepares meals for the
homebound and homeless, and runs an open pantry for
families who are unable to adequately feed their families.
This happens with deep appreciation for our support.
This was our 4th Thanksgiving drive and the second one
this year where Cryder Point contributed to the pantry,
recognizing the impact of Covid-19 on families and the
need to keep food pantries stocked.
Thanks go to everyone in the Cryder Point community
who so generously contributed.
