Provided by Newport Food Pantry
We know you get asked often to contribute to worthy causes especially in a town our size. But for 2012 I hope you will seriously contributing to a serious cause and that is fighting hunger in Newport.
Consider this an invitation to join the Newport Food Pantry’s Hunger Action Monthly program which is simply contributing either $10 or $20 per month to help provide food to Newport’s hungry families in 2012.
The Newport Food Pantry is the emergency food outlet for our town and since it opened last October 4th, over 50,000 pounds of food has been distributed to over 2,400 people – 1/3 of those 18 and under. To date nearly 20% of our population has signed up to use the Pantry, many of them our neighbors and employees. Four hundred families and 1,100 people visit the Newport Food Pantry each for an emergency food supply. That is 11% of Newport’s population!
The Newport Food Pantry is hoping that many Newport individuals and families can pledge ten or twenty dollars a month to the food pantry’s efforts to keep up with the demand for food in these trying economic times. If you can, here’s where to mail your monthly check:
