Your view: Stamp out hunger

Monday, June 25, 2007

Bootheel Food Bank would like to thank the community for their support of two recent events.

During the "Stamp Out Hunger" campaign on May 12, 3,000 pounds of food was collected to help those in need. Thank you Sikeston community for your generosity and a special note of gratitude to the Sikeston Postal workers who made this possible.

Also the Food Bank Open House held Tuesday, June 5, during the "National Hunger Awareness Day" was a big success and the staff of Bootheel Food Bank appreciates those who attended the event and a very special thank you to Sikeston Motor Company for providing us with a Ford vehicle to transport visitors to our additional facilities. Congratulations to all who won attendance prizes.

Without those of you who contribute your time and money to help, Bootheel Food Bank couldn't continue "delivering help and hope to the hungry of Southeast Missouri."

Sincerely Karen Green

Executive Director
