November 2020 UPDATE: We revamped our meeting structure in November and are pleased to announce that we have selected Church Out Serving as the successful recipient of $15,600.
This money will be spent on stainless steel counters, sinks and food safe work surfaces in their commercial kitchen. Since March, Church Out Serving has stepped forward in response to a growing and urgent need to help local residents who were experiencing food insecurity, many for the first time. These people consist of housebound seniors, people who are ill, disabled or immune-compromised (due to cancer, ALS, MS) and those facing financial hardships. Many of these people are not able to leave their homes, shop for food, prepare meals and are distanced from family
FUTURE MEETINGS: We will continue to conduct our quarterly meetings via email. The first email will be sent out in January 2021 and will include our new COVID submission & presentation forms. If you know of a Norfolk Charity who could use some support, please consider submitting their name. If you did not receive this email please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: New members are welcome to join.
The total donations since May 2014 are just under $400,000…supporting 27 local charities.
