The Shelter Group reaches out to Veterans & contributes to Food for Thought program

Posted By: Katie Lindner (deleted) Member Outreach ,

Last week, a small group of Shelter associates signed and wrote personal messages on over 200 holiday greeting cards to active soldiers and Veterans. The same group has been gathering canned goods for the Food For Thought charity. In conjunction with Prince of Peace Church in Rosedale The Shelter Group is sponsoring backpacks for this important program. Food for Thought provides backpacks of food to children who would otherwise not have anything to eat on the weekend. Prince of Peace currently sponsors 6 of these backpacks each week at an approximate cost of $10 each or $60 per weekend.  They will also provide food for these students during the holiday break.
