December 2021 Newsletter
The Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry staff, board, volunteers and clients wish all of you a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year! During this time of year our clients have the opportunity to see God’s love at work through the many donations to the Food Pantry that help them have a brighter Holiday season.
Thank you to The Farm Bureau Young Leaders for conducting a “Fill-a-Ford” Food Drive on November 13 at Fareway in Geneseo. Also, thank you to all who helped donate 1580 pounds of food to this Food Drive! Thank you to all the schools, churches, businesses, organizations and groups who donated food as well. We were able to provide Thanksgiving baskets to more than 90 households because of the generosity of our community! We are also able to provide Christmas food baskets so that those in need can have a nice holiday dinner.
Thank you to everyone who donated gifts for families with children in our Holiday Gifts Program. Also, thank you to all who donated gifts for adults and teenagers. You are a blessing to those families and individuals!
Our Volunteer of the Month, Sharon Apperson, has been volunteering at the Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry since July. She helps people sign in when they visit the clothing room, and she helps sort and display clothing and household items. Sharon has three grown children and five grandchildren. Her hobbies are reading, painting and doing crafts. She said the best thing about volunteering at the Food Pantry are the people! Sharon’s most memorable experience at the Food Pantry was the welcome she received on her first day. Thank you for all your time and hard work, Sharon!
