To The Daily Sun,
I am writing to thank Hannaford Foods for helping their community help feed those in need this holiday season. Hannaford had offered to match donations purchased by customers over the holiday season. If you bought pasta, pasta sauce, or a can of vegetables for the food shelves, they would match your donation. This is not unique to Hannaford, or just the holiday season as most retail grocery store owners help feed those in need year round either through such promotions, or by giving past due labels, or ripe fresh vegetables and produce to the food shelves. In a time when it is hard to find good in the world, it is refreshing to see such generous giving.
My sincere thanks goes out to all the efforts made to help those in need. I have never had to "go without" in my life, and can't begin to imagine how it would feel to not be able to feed those I love and care for. Even if you don't have the means to donate to the food shelves, thank your favorite grocer for their unselfish gifts to those in need.
