Letter From Glenn – Winter 2018

Dear Friends,


I can’t think of a better time than the holidays to reflect on what we’ve accomplished in the last year, what remains to be done and what we hope for in the new year.


But most importantly, it’s a great time to say THANK YOU to amazing supporters like you. With your help, we’re serving more of our neighbors in need this holiday season than ever.


For many families, the holidays bring added expenses to already-tight budgets. As we gather with loved ones to celebrate, more than 700,000 people in the Delaware Valley will be stretching their dollars just to put food on the table – and many will fall short.


The winter months also bring higher heating bills, which put further strain on household budgets for working families. Too often people are forced to choose between heating their homes and feeding their families.


That’s why we are so grateful for your support. You help working families put food on the table and ease the stress that comes with the colder weather. You help us connect our neighbors in need with nutritious food that might otherwise go to waste.


In this winter edition of The Feed, I hope you’ll enjoy reading about some of the many lives changed by your gifts. Still, we have more work to do to end hunger forever – and we can only get there with the continued partnership of compassionate people like you.


Please enjoy reading about the difference you’re making for children, seniors and families across our area. On behalf of the entire team at Philabundance, and all those we serve, thank you for your generosity and continued support!
