Ongoing Support from Hartzell UMC and Madeira HS Key Club

NEEDS is grateful for the support we receive from our faithful partners. Regular donations from churches, schools, and other organizations help us to maintain pantry supplies throughout the year. Recently, pantry coordinator Maureen shared two great examples. The first was a large donation from Hartzell United Methodist Church:

“What a surprise to have a full carload of nonperishable food and personal care items show up in our drive-through last week! Just who was our benefactor? We found out that the generous members of Hartzell United Methodist Church had collected many of the items on the ‘wish list’ we send out to our member churches. Thank you so much for the wonderful donation, and most of all, for your ongoing support!”

Another terrific donation arrived thanks to the Madeira High School Key Club:

“Julie Leugers, advisor to the Madeira High School Key Club, contacted NEEDS recently to let us know that her students and their families were holding yet ANOTHER drive to benefit our food pantry. What wonderful supporters they have become in our efforts to meet the emergency needs of our neighbors!

Julie and her fellow teacher, Kim, arrived Monday April 18 with two full vehicles of donated food and personal care items. Club members and their families couldn’t have picked a better time to donate. Summer has always been a long dry spell for those who donate to the pantry. Schools are out, and members of local companies and churches are on vacation. But the emergency needs of our neighbors don’t take a holiday. Every donation helps us to stock the pantry for the summer months ahead.”

A big thank you to Hartzell UMC and Madeira HS Key Club for their reliable support!
