The food pantry thanks you


To the Editor:

Many thanks to all the Islanders — both individuals and organizations — who made needed contributions to the Island Food Pantry in the days before the Thanksgiving holiday. Turkeys, pies, and much more were distributed to the many families who depend on the food pantry to help meet their food needs.

The food pantry exists through donations of both food and funds from the generosity of our Island family. Please continue to think of us throughout the holiday season, but also during the “quiet months” of January and February, when our donations can sometimes be “quiet” as well. We have food donation boxes in all of the grocery stores and libraries. Financial donations, which are used to supplement the food we collect, can be sent to Island Food Pantry, P.O. Box 1874, Vineyard Haven, MA 02568. Call 693-4764 for more information.

And thank you all once again for thinking of us this Thanksgiving.
