Pantry received lots of response
To the editor:
The United Church of Jaffrey Food Pantry is most grateful to the Ledger-Transcript for the Spirit of Giving recognition.
The response from businesses, individuals and other non-profit groups was overwhelming – the financial donations for food purchases will take us deep into the winter of 2014 and serve well the ever-growing hunger needs in our community. The heart-warming generosity of the contributions, accompanied with messages of good cheer for our neighbors, fulfills the prophecy of Psalms 9 verse 18; “For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.”
We are blessed to live in such a caring community, and your help in spreading joy during the holiday season is most appreciated.
