2020 has been a challenging year for us all, but it's been especially hard on many of our area families who have been excluded from government relief. For these families, pantries are a lifeline. This holiday season, we are asking our friends and followers in Sunnyside and beyond to support our fundraising campaign to support area pantries---specifically, to ensure our neediest families have holiday grocery boxes and gift items for their children. Sunnyside Shines will match the first $2,500 raised through this fundraiser!
Throughout this year, our staff have helped to assist two pantries in our area that have made a difference: the Mosaic pantry in Sunnyside, and the Manos Que Dan, Reciben pantry in Woodside. Together, they serve over 1,000 families weekly----and with COVID on the rise, and some of the federal food aid programs for our area defunded, the situation for many is becoming even more desperate.
Please help ensure that these families have food on their tables for the holidays and gifts for their children. Every dollar counts, and every donation will be split evenly between our two community pantries!
With gratitude and warm holiday wishes,
