THANK YOU for the “best holiday ever”!

Your gift helped GFLB have the “best holiday ever.” 

Looks like we made it through another busy holiday season with nothing but positive feedback and results. Greater Lansing Food Bank’s 2016-2017 holiday theme –  Best Gift Ever – was one that appears to have resonated with the community. Donations to and volunteering at GLFB allowed those in need to celebrate the holidays without worry, and this campaign also allowed people to connect with their neighbors in ways that mattered.

Kids wanted to donate to their fellow students; seniors wanted to give back; businesses engaged their employees in food and funds campaigns; and busy parents made time to volunteer. There was a tremendous outpouring of support for the mission of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. So much support, in fact, that there are far too many people to thank on an individual basis. Thanks to this support, pallets of food donations came into our warehouse and those same pallets were delivered throughout our seven county region. Many of our staff looked like a blur to me throughout December as they collected donations and delivered food on a non-stop basis.

Your support for the mission of GLFB is simply phenomenal. The support of people like you is not only what keeps food on the table for many in Mid-Michigan, but it is also the spirit of our community and of the Greater Lansing Food Bank itself. It’s about working together to make sure no one has to worry about where their next meal comes from. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you to everyone who provided support to the mission of the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Thank you for caring. Thank you for making certain that there is food on everyone’s tables.
