Dear Neighbors, Friends, and Community,
March 2020 came in like a lamb and left with the roar of a lion.
Our lives took a pivotal turn just 11 weeks ago. As an organization we have risen to the challenge. Although we have made many changes during the Covid pandemic our mission has stayed the same. We continue to provide healthy food options by feeding our neighbors today while empowering them for tomorrow.
The challenges that we face have at times been overwhelming but our community continues to offer support. We have been blessed many times over with food and personal care items.
As many of you know we furloughed our volunteers 11 weeks ago. We miss you! As we look to the future we are once again accessing options for the safety of our community. We are adhering to social distancing and are limiting our contact with staff, volunteers, and neighbors.
Despite Covid we continue to look towards the future and plan for tomorrow.
Our Fresh Market is developing a strategy to reopen. It is our wish to continue to provide, local fresh produce to meet the needs of our neighbors. At the Neighbors Choice Pantry, we continue to offer shelf stable food boxes along with fresh produce, protein, dairy choices, and personal care items.
Due to the Covid pandemic we were forced to cancel our spring fundraising events. This online initiative is taking the place of these fundraisers.
Many of you have asked how you can help. We welcome your financial support.
As difficult as these times have been, I am excited to change my focus away from Covid and look to our future and these initiatives…
Please help us “Plant a Seed and Watch us Grow”!
Executive Director, The Green Apple
Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000. Your financial contribution ensures we will be able to meet all operating needs while providing nutritional food for our neighbors.
From everyone at The Green Apple, we would like to Thank You for your continued support.
