Thank You to Stop Hunger Food Drive Supporters

To all of our valued Stop Hunger Food Drive supporters:

I am really excited to share with you the results of our recently completed Stop Hunger Food Drive!  The total amount of food collected was 8,054 pounds! This is simply spectacular, and we want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this a success.

A huge “thank you” to all of the UMW athletes who tabled in front of the Giant Food Store and solicited donations in our surrounding neighborhoods, and especially to Maddie Taghorn for coordinating everything so perfectly!

We also want to thank the Staff Advisory Council, Giant Food, and the New City Fellowship Church for your wonderful support.

All of the food is being distributed to the Eagle Resource Closet and to the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank. We received a call from the Food Bank today expressing their deep appreciation for our donations, and saying they really needed this help right now.

Again, our thanks to everyone for supporting the drive, and we look forward to doing this again, and even better, next year!
