You matter

Valentine’s Day seems like an appropriate time to remind you that you matter! Whether you donate food, provide financial support, give the gift of your time as a volunteer or a staff member, or if you are one of our neighbors who has visited the Pantry for a bit of help…you matter!  I am truly fortunate to be part of the Loaves & Fishes family and it is a privilege to work with you and/or support you. My best for a Happy Valentine’s Day – you all matter to me.
