New Food Pantry director thanks community
WOW, what a fantastic community. As I am just getting started working with the Chugiak-Eagle River Food Pantry, I am very impressed by the outpouring of contributions that make our community a better place.
So many people stepped up this past year that helped us to provide more than 190,000 pounds of food to approximately 145 families per month who needed just a little bit of help.
It is impossible in this short space to thank all the organizations, schools, and businesses that made this possible, but THANK YOU... THANK YOU! We also thank all the other food charities that share with us and work towards the same goals.
All the food charities will continue to work to provide food this year for those who need a little help and we look forward to your support again.
Come learn more about what we do as a 100 percent volunteer organization and meet some of our wonderful volunteers. We are located in Eagle River Presbyterian Church at 12836 Old Glenn Highway.
