A bowl of thanks

Letter writer pleased with local support for humanitarian effort

Recently I put out an appeal for funds to help the Sharing Dinner Pot volunteer program continue to serve its hot dinners weekly for those in need. The cost of groceries and rent has risen considerably. Our cooking teams and I would to thank all those who responded so generously to the plea for help. The Stonesoup Committee who oversees the project began providing full, hot and nutritious meals at no charge twice a week in 1996. The ability to continue the meal service over time, now weekly, has been possible because of contributions in volunteer time and funds from several different community groups. So once again, thanks to our community of Castlegar for coming through!
