A Special Thank You

Thank You to Families of Colton School District
This week at the GreenHouse was one for the record books. We broke a record for the number of households served in a single day: 72. In less than 3 hours, our team served 72 families. To say we were busy was an understatement. This week due to Presidents’ Day, we were only open two days, but we served nearly 130 families. It seems every time we turn around, we have a new person walking through our food bank doors. Don’t get me wrong, we are happy to serve our community, that’s what a food bank does! We serve people who need help. However, those needing help are growing in number rather than staying the same. Times are lean. We are grateful to have enough food to help, and for our local and state partnerships that deliver food to us, as well as our donors who help keep our lights on. Some highlights of this week for me were:
  • One of our most vulnerable clients is getting some much needed help through our community partner, Rural Resources.
  • We had donations of sleeping bags, clothing, and cat and dog food come through the door.
  • Our team of volunteers met every single benchmark this week, and they did it with a smile.
  • I laughed with many clients. I hugged, and yes—cried—with a few too.
So, while the need is great, and the days are packed full, on behalf of everyone who serves the GreenHouse and therefore the people who live in our community, Thank you!
