Thank you note from Nicole A. Davis, Executive Director at Center For Food Action:

You have made a difference to so many!
Thank you for your donation of $4,000.00 made on 12/24/2023. Every act of your generosity helps us further our mission. Your gift enables us to continue feeding local families facing food insecurity. This year the number of people seeking our services continues to grow, due in part to inflation and the rising costs of food, and we expect these numbers to only increase in 2024.

Once again, thank you for your support in helping to make the world a better place. You could have chosen any number of organizations to support, and we are thankful that you selected CFA.  Thank You!
