Happy Holiday to you and your loved ones. My deepest thanks to all of you who have
donated food and money to WHEAT since we put out our plea about our bare shelves.
Because of the generosity of so many, we were able to give out 400 Thanksgiving baskets to West Haven families in need as well as give out groceries to almost 500 families.
Your response has been overwhelming; finding room for all of the donated food has been a good problem, especially since we are giving it out quickly. By the end of December, you will have helped over 4,000 under employed and unemployed families, veterans, the elderly, and those who are ill or disabled—all of whom are our West Haven neighbors.
You have contributed over $30,000 since our request went out in November—enough to keep our doors open for the next three months. If you haven’t made a year- end donation to your favorite charity, please choose WHEAT. We depend on donations to accomplish our mission.
The holidays will soon be over, but people need to eat every day, and we anticipate providing food and services to 4,000 households again next year. I hope you will remember to help us feed our neighbors in need during the winter months. No amount of food or money is too little; every can, every dollar is put to good use.
Again, I wish you and yours a blessed, peace-filled and joyous holiday.
Rose Majestic, Executive Director
