“The Chatham Area Silent Pantry thanks [the Canaan Congregational Church] for [their] generous donation of 20 bags of food items for the clients at our pantry. We appreciate your work and support in contributing to our efforts to feed the hungry.
“This past year the number of visits to our pantry increased by 18%. With donations like yours we have continued to expand our inventory to meet the growing need in our community.
“The pantry is open four days a week. In addition to offering emergency food to our clients, through the help of local businesses and organizations, we provide a Thanksgiving turkey, trimmings, and gift cards for food. We participate in a backpack program through the schools, which sends home emergency food for the weekend to families in need. …
We are truly grateful and thank you for making our community a better place to live.”
