Guess what walked through the front door at Community FoodBank this week: $100. Of course, it didn’t do it all by itself.
Instead, this particular contribution, a combination of coins and small bills, came from an anonymous supporter who likes to help his community. This time, he said he had worked over the weekend, and received $100 more than he needed, so he thought the food bank might put it to good use.
We certainly can! It’s only through the generosity of this amazing community that Community FoodBank can continue to help nourish a healthier San Benito County.
