Sunset Fundraiser Final Total Breaks the Record! >>
Moraine Township Trustee Cindy Wolfson spearheaded our Sunset Foods Fundraiser for the sixth consecutive year staging two groups of volunteers for 2-hour shifts for three consecutive days to ask shoppers to support the Food Pantry.

Final numbers from Sunset plus a late check combined to break last year's record donations. Our total for three days was $14,100.87!!! There were 744 donations at the cash register plus many hundreds in the bucket. We are grateful to Sunset Foods for providing us the opportunity to easily reach a large number of donors in just three days.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to almost 50 volunteers – some wokring multiple shifts over three days - who made this possible!
