Food Pantry Plus Results – Thank You to Our Community

April 14, 2020

Last week, we sent an urgent call to the community to help us restock our Food Pantry with canned goods, cleaning supplies, and other home products. We’re in awe and grateful for the community response!

We’re so thrilled to share that we had more than 200 cars drop off items at Iona on Saturday. It was amazing! Our fitness room is FULL with food and household items to be sorted and distributed to our clients’ doorsteps. Thank you so much to those who donated, the staff who organized these efforts, and to the volunteers who helped us collect the items while practicing good social distancing. It is comforting to know that we can lean on caring friends like you to get us through these unprecedented times.

Many of you have asked if you can still donate items to our pantry—as you can see from the photos, we are at full capacity! Because we don’t yet know how long we will be in this crisis, or the extent that it will impact the community we serve—we may hold a pantry drive again in the future. We will communicate about future drives via email and on our social media. You can also contribute to our work by making a donation online here.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
