The expected turnout didn’t disappoint, with some people lined up on bicycles and some starting two hours before the distribution was set to start. In total, 391 households were served, providing food to 1,505 persons, including 787 children.
Many other local businesses and individuals have also stepped up and made contributions to UWCF and the food distribution sites. Snell’s Berry Farm donated 5,600 pounds of fresh-picked blueberries, the Girl Scouts donated 6,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and The Strand Salon supplied our volunteers with 600 gloves.
Thank you to all of our donors, large and small, for helping to make UWCF’s George W. Jenkins End Hunger initiative so impactful in our community. Many Polk residents rely on this service for basic needs, now more than ever.
To inspire our community to give, advocate and volunteer by identifying needs and mobilizing vetted resources to create positive, local change.
To unite our community and empower everyone to achieve their full potential.
