On behalf of our fabulous hard-working committee I would like to thank the entire London and area community for their huge generosity allowing us to surpass of goal of 307,800 lbs for the London Food Bank. We reported late yesterday an astonishing 325,500 lbs that came in.
The past 48 hours were nothing short of incredible as we were tracking reasonably well with food but significantly short of cheques and with the London media assisting our efforts we managed to meet our goal and then some.
Although we are so excited what happened the last few days, we acknowledge our solid base of contributors from the beginning of the campaign... and who are always behind us. They put us in the position that we were able to do this.
Our thanks also go out to the hundreds of volunteers, without whom we would not be in the position we are today. We are grateful to all of you whether you helped donating food, contributing financially, volunteering your precious time, or offering gifts in kind. Thank you and from all of us to all of you a very Merry Christmas and wonderful holiday season.
