Our mission is to bring out the best in everyone we touch because every life matters! And to us that means going out and finding ways to help make every life matter. Sometimes that’s in the form of confidence building at a CPR class, fundraising at a carwash, or doing a book drive for a school in need of a library.
This time it was a food drive, our annual Vanway Food Drive. Every fall our Colleagues work to collect canned goods and non-perishable items to donate to the local Salvation Army, Neighbors in Need and the Merrimack Valley Food Bank for distribution to community members in need.
This year we collected 528 lbs. of food for donation. That is 440 meals distributed throughout the communities we call home. That’s 440 full bellies and warm meals that wouldn’t have been distributed if it wasn’t for your donations. So thank you. To the Vanway team who put it all together and the donors who helped make it happen. Thank you for your donations, for your generosity, and for spreading the WOW! Magic!
Where did it go?
The Salvation Army serves 60 million meals to anyone in need through its many soup kitchens, sit-down meal programs, food pantries, mobile meals and community gardens. Neighbors in Need has fed the poor and hungry of greater Lawrence for 30 years. The Merrimack Valley Food Bank has been transporting, storing and distributing food to disadvantaged members in the community since 1991.
Thank you all for your donations!
