Mail Carriers Food Drive 2013

Last Saturday (May 11th) was our Annual Mail Carriers Food Drive! Residents left donations for the pantry on their porches. All Saturday afternoon donations were collected and brought to FISH to be sorted. We collected over 20000 pounds of food!!

This wouldn't have been possible with out the countless donations and support from the community.

Also, a big thank you to:
-FISH Volunteers
-AmVets Post 8
-Grace Lutheran
-NHS Volunteers
-Galesburg United Way
-Knox College
-Knox Colleges Blessings In A Backpack
-Galesburg High School
-All other Volunteers

We had an incredible amount of volunteers who gave their time to help us out. So thank you to each and every one of them!

Here's some pictures from the drive:

One of the many drop offs throughout the day.

Volunteers sort food that was collected from around the community.
 Boxes and Boxes! Oh my! Some of the many boxes that fill the pantry!
 Knox College's Blessings In a Backpack Volunteers sort food.

The wall of FISH is now lined with stacks and stacks of canned goods!
