A Letter from Glenn – November 2016

Posted by Glenn Bergman on November 12th, 2016

I get especially excited about the great things your support makes possible at this time of year. The holiday spirit is evident throughout our community — in the number of food drives you host, generous turkey distributions at agencies and other efforts to bring joy to our neighbors in need.

As I share a special meal with my loved ones this Thanksgiving, families like La’Shorn’s — who you’ll meet on page 8 — will be in my heart. Because friends like you choose to give, La’Shorn and her son, Anthony, have life-giving food throughout the year.

I hope you’ll take a moment during the coming weeks to reflect on what your gifts make possible. Families can access all the ingredients for a special holiday meal thanks to your support. Sitting down to break bread together seems so simple, but food is a stabilizing force for all of us — even more so at this time of year.

In this special holiday issue of The Feed, you can hear from La’Shorn and a few other neighbors whose lives you’ve helped change for the better. Stories like these keep me inspired. I hope they do the same for you.

Here at Philabundance, we’re already gearing up for a very productive New Year. I’m thrilled to see what we’ll be able to accomplish in 2017 with your continued partnership.

Thank you sincerely for your support of this important work. Together, we’re bringing hope — in the form of food — to those in the Delaware Valley who need it most.

Happy holidays,

Glenn Bergman
Executive Director
