Happy New Year – and many thanks for your support throughout the past year.
We greatly appreciate your donations of food, children’s clothing, and money so we can continue serving our neighbors in the community. We could not provide these services without our faithful volunteers who are at Operation Attack three mornings and one evening each month – and those who assist in the many tasks that must be done “behind the scenes.”
We would like to give a special thanks to Center for Spiritual Living Florida Gulf Coast for their donation of food and new/gently used clothing, Also, First Presbyterian Church gifted us with new and gently used clothing, including new socks, underwear and school uniforms for Back to School. A Big Shout Out goes to Winifred Pfister for her extremely generous financial gift. Many Blessings to all of you who share your good fortune with the people in our community.
During the past year we provided assistance to 630 families, clothed 551 children with 6,887 clothing items, and provided food to 1,325 people. We also assisted 117 people with their PAST DUE electric bill.
We have been blessed this year with new volunteers, but more are needed. Please contact Diane or Peggy if you are interested in volunteering just one Tuesday each month, or more often – or assisting with some “behind the scenes” tasks.
As we still have a couple of months of cooler weather, we continue to need boys’ and girls’ jackets for sizes 2T through teens. When buying for teens, please keep in mind the styles they prefer. We also need girl’s tops for sizes 6-12, boy’s jeans for sizes 10-18, and XL boys no show socks. We have been providing more sizes of diapers to our families and can use donations of sizes to fit Newborn – 35-pound children.
We always need canned fruit, soup, vegetables, meat, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, beans, peanut butter, bread and cereal. Be sure your donations are foods our families will enjoy preparing and eating. Currently, we especially need oatmeal, cereal, peanut butter and canned meat.
We would be happy to speak to your group about Operation Attack.
