Annual Food Drive – 2011

We held our annual food drive from November 1st through November 19th this year.  Our goal was 2,002 pounds, which would beat last year’s total of just over 1 ton of food.  The employees formed two teams – the Orange Team and the Pink Team – the team bringing in the most food wins a $10 gift card to the store or restaurant of each team member’s choosing. 

Food Drive TeamsThe Orange Team brought in 15,069.01 ounces or 941.81 pounds.  The Pink Team brought in 16,237.60 ounces or 1,014.85 pounds.  The grand total was 31,306.61 ounces or 1,956.66 pounds of food.  We fell short of our goal by only 45.34 pounds! 

The Food is Loaded!But that didn’t matter to West End Neighborhood House!  We filled up the back of a pick-up truck and the trunk and back seat of a car!  Barbara Read said our food donation would help a lot of families in the coming weeks.  They once again awarded us the coveted Golden Grocery Award for our dedicated efforts in the fight against hunger!
