InCity Times letter to the editor

THANKS TO ALL! OUR FOOD DRIVE WAS A SUCCESS!

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our annual Food Drive this year.

We were able to collect 9,780 lbs of food for the Friendly House. In addition to the food, we had $2,000 in donations mailed in.

After adding up all the donations gathered with our partners at the Worcester County Sheriff’s Department, Price Chopper, the Worcester Sharks, and other local sponsors, the total for the Food Drive this year was almost 193,000 lbs of food.

This is an incredible result and would not have been possible without the incredible support and participation that we saw this year.

While canvassing 10,000 – 12,000 homes leaves room for possible gaps, I would like to thank those who called in about bags that were missed so that we could arrange a way for them to get to the Friendly House. We hope to be able to keep up this great momentum next year!

Thanks,
Aaron Pepin
