With your strong support you have
made it possible for great things to happen. Summer is upon us and as we
head into the second half of the year Tukwila Pantry needs to raise $60,000 to
keep this mission functioning. Now more than ever your help is needed for this
goal to be met.
pretty simple, but that’s what we are about. Lending a hand to help our
neighbors with the most basic of needs, food is our mission. We all know
someone in this community that needs our support. We may not think we do but
just take a look around. Tukwila Pantry serves nearly three thousand households representing some nine thousand individuals.
On a Tuesday morning I had the pleasure of meeting one of those individuals, I will call him "James". I was outside in the line assisting clients when we met. He’s bright, happy and two years old. He is unaware of the circumstances around him. "James" was lucky, his mother knew where she could get help. Because today, and hopefully for days to come, she will be able to keep "James", herself and the rest of the family nourished in food and the thought that they have a community that cares. I said good bye to "James", made sure he had a smile on his face and went back to assisting the remainder of 215 families that visited us on that day.
Your support is as vital as the services we offer. You make the difference for many of the young ones in our community. Children like "James" should not know hunger, and he won’t with your support.
