Dear Hupy and Abraham,
It is with sincere appreciation that we acknowledge your generous Thanksgiving donation to the COOL Food Pantry.
The economic climate we are facing continues to impact those who come to us for assistance. Many families continue to struggle to provide basic necessities (food and shelter) for their families. When families suffer from food insecurity - not knowing where their next meal will come from - finding food becomes the number one priority.
This year we have again seen an increase in the number of visitors to our food pantries and expect that this will continue, especially throughout the holiday season. We are thankful that through the generosity of our donors, we can again have these holiday meals available for our pantry visitors.
COOL is committed to identifying and adapting to the ever-changing needs of our community, and our staff works very hard to continue providing the highest level of services to those who come to us seeking assistance.
On behalf of all of us at COOL and those we serve, we thank you for your help and support in carrying out our mission of service to those less fortunate.
