Letter from Glenn

Posted by Philabundance on March 1st, 2017

It’s hard to believe that 2017 is already well underway! I want to take a moment to share my gratitude for your support this past holiday season. Thanks to generous friends like you, families throughout the Delaware Valley were able to celebrate the holidays together around an abundant table.

During the winter months, we turn our attention to the needs of senior citizens and others living on fixed incomes. After decades of work, life and countless contributions to our society, older adults should be able to relax and enjoy their golden years.

But health issues, costly medications and other expenses — like increased winter heating bills — leave our elderly and disabled neighbors struggling to get by on a limited budget.

Many seniors have spent their lives striving for the betterment of our community. I’m sure you agree they deserve better than the stress of not knowing where their next meal might come from.

Please take the time to read the stories of hope in this issue of The Feed. Henry, a decorated war veteran who you’ll meet on page 8, sacrificed a warm home to afford his expenses before he connected with a Philabundance member agency. Your gifts help admirable neighbors like him thrive this spring with nutritious food.

I’m truly thankful for your support of this important work, and I hope you’ll join us in ensuring our neighbors can access the food they need.

Every dollar you donate allows Philabundance to provide two meals for our neighbors in need. Together, we’re going to make so much progress this year — I look forward to seeing how our partnership will continue to change lives in the months ahead. Thank you for all you do!

Executive Director
