Meijer’s Simply Give May 12-June 22

EFPN is once again fortunate to be chosen as a partner with our local Meijer’s for the Simply Give Campaign  The campaign will run May 12 thru June 22. For each $10.00 donation, Meijer will provide additional  funds.   Friday May 31 and Friday June 14 will be Double Match Day. On these days,  for every $10.00 donation, Meijers will give an additional $20.00.  Your $10.00 donation becomes $30.00 for EFPN.  The  donation cards can be found near the checkout lanes at our local Meijers. Thank you for supporting this event.  Our pantry coordinators are very happy to able to buy items that we usually do not get donated such as meat or items we have in short supply.

EFPN Received Visits from Girl Scout Troops

Two girl scout troops came to the EFPN offices to learn about EFPN.  Girls Scout Troop 50721  brought boxes of girl scout cookies. The girls counted the boxes in and  put them on the shelves in our warehouse. Our pantry coordinators took the boxes from our warehouse for their pantry shelves. The cookies were a special treat for our clients. The girls also counted a food donation that had come in and shelved the items. Girl Scout Troop 50574 brought items for birthday kits.  They had a tour of the SAMS pantry, one of our eight pantries.  They were given the task of selecting a weeks worth of food for a two person family.  We want to thank these troops for supporting EFPN and their willingness to learn about our organization.  We also want to thank their leaders and their parents for teaching them to be concerned for those in need.
