Dear friends of WNN,

We humbly ask for your immediate assistance! We are struggling to keep our shelves of donated food items stocked.

Last week we fed almost 90 families in 4 days. This means we gave away 90 cans of green beans, 90 cans of corn, 90 cans of soup, 90 cans of fruit, 90 cans of canned meat, 90 cans of tomatoes, and 90 cans of other vegetables. By last Friday at noon our shelves were almost bare.

As we head towards the holiday giveaways, we need to restock for daily operations and also add additional items to feed the 250 families we are expecting for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Below is a list of items needed on an on-going basis, as well as the holiday items. Would you please get the word out to your congregations, friends, and families? Items can be dropped off at the Network (Monday - Friday 10:00 am- 12:15 pm.)

On-going Suggested List of Items Needed for the Pantry:
Canned Vegetables, meat and fruit
Canned Tomato Products
Macaroni and Cheese
Spaghetti Sauce and Noodles

As always, we are accepting financial donations so we can do the shopping for you. Thank you so much for considering making a donation! We could not operate without your generosity and it makes a tangible difference to quality of life in our community. Be blessed!
