VCAM MONTHLY UPDATE
(December 2016 Services)
Services Provided for December 2016:
HELLO ALL -
I am looking forward to my 2017 journey here at VCAM with great anticipation. I would like to start off the year, thanking those that contributed during the holiday season and hopes are to continue that generous trend of giving throughout the year(s). Our supporting churches, through monetary donations and donation drives, really stepped up their support in November-December to fill our shelves. Their kindness was overwhelming and very much appreciated. Our community in general, showed the giving spirit towards VCAM to better serve the needy.
But as the need here at VCAM has increased, just that fast, our shelves have emptied. VCAM has the largest food pantry in a surrounding 11-county area served by the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent. Due to the holidays and inventory at our facility, we were in operation just 16 days in December, yet still serviced over 3,400 individuals in Victoria County.
To stretch the dollars that we receive to carry on our ministry at its most efficient, consider this when considering our organization: product at the Food Bank is purchased at 19-cents per pound. To make your giving dollar stretch further, keep in mind how the monetary donation goes a lot further than the actual donated item. And volunteer opportunities are always encouraged.
Condiments – ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, salad dressings
Basic Needs – toiletries, laundry detergent, bath soap, baby diapers(size 2 & larger)
*WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF BASIC NEEDS ITEMS AS OUR INVENTORY IS LOW*
