In this week's blog, we are thrilled to be spotlighting the Financial Accounting Foundation and the incredible work they did to help prepare 8,000 bags for the National Postal Food Drive to benefit three food pantries in Westport - Homes with Hope, The Westport Woman's Club Food Pantry, and The Weston Food Pantry.
Every year the National Association of Letter Carriers hosts the annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive across the country. This year the event was held on May 11th. To prepare for the event each year, Homes with Hope in Westport needs to prepare 10,000 bags with a sticker and label so that they can be delivered to homes several days in advance. Residents are asked to fill the bags and leave them near their mailboxes on Saturday, May 11th for the postal workers to pick up and deliver to the food pantries. Maureen Liebergall, Community Relations Director of Homes with Hope was so grateful that the Financial Accounting Foundation team was willing to help prep the bags, a project that she usually looks for a company to complete. This food drive fills the Homes with Hope's food pantry for the entire summer, it's very important to the clients that use their services. The bags were donated by Fresh Market this year.
