New Hope Food Pantry wants to give a couple of shout outs this week to those who supported us with a FOOD DRIVES! We rely on individuals, businesses and the community as a whole to help us raise food, and we appreciate each and every person that steps up to help out!
Timbercreek Elementary - The students at Timbercreek Elementary did a cereal drive. 508 lbs. of cereal were collected by the students and before they were brought to us, the school arranged all the cereal boxes like dominos through out the school and held an assembly allowing the students to watch as they knocked the boxes over and watched the patterns topple. The kids, I was told, enjoyed it immensely. Huge thank you to Heather Southwell for organizing and delivering (in multiple vehicles) the bounty.
Premier Martial Arts - Located at 11951 S Strang Line Rd, in Olathe, Program Director, Brent Hubbard has arranged to host a drive quarterly for food and cleaning supplies. Their Black Belt students get the privilege of helping at the event and the other students earn a "Community Stripe" by either donating time or supplies to help. What a great example set by a private business! I challenge another area business to step up and help out like Premier Martial Arts is doing.
Peace and blessings,
Caylon Umphrey, Executive Director
