We Found the Helpers!

The late Fred Rogers’s direction to “look for people who are helping” in times of crisis has come up a lot lately. And with good reason. This is certainly an unusual time, and certainly a crisis. We have found the helpers–and in some cases, the helpers found us.

We cannot tell you how grateful we are to have so many incredible people helping us.

We have lost jobs. We have lost hours. We have lost. A lot. Despite all that, the helpers are present.

*There’s Zaftig Brewers, who donated 200 pounds of fresh produce after having to close their (awesome) Italian Village location.

*Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers gave 250 free kids combo coupons to distribute to our customers.

*Nayked Apparel is donating 10 percent of sales of their We Care line of Men’s and Women’s clothing to NNEMAP Food Pantry.

A dedicated cast of volunteers has stepped up–Victoria, Richard, Judy, Valerie, Madonna, Cathy, Sharon–all working tirelessly to make sure customers get served. Because we can’t do this without volunteers.

Pantry Manager Jim Hamberg, Pantry Services Coordinator Ali Dojki, and Executive Director Roy Clark have continuously refined the operation to ensure volunteers have a safe work environment and customers get plenty of healthy and safe food choices.

If you are reading this, I know YOU are a helper, too. If you can’t get out to help, you can help from the safety and comfort of your own home. Please consider donating money or materials to help us continue to serve customers. There are many ways to help–click below to find out more.

I WANT TO HELP!!!
