LETTER: Food drive donations make a real difference

This a thank you to all of the organizers, volunteers and every single person that donated to the food bank drive Nov. 18-19.

You don’t know me or my family, and pride would keep me from introducing myself as the mom that you helped immeasurably this holiday season. You didn’t know that we recently moved to the Island for a fresh start. You didn’t know anything about my daughter’s health problems, which prevent both my husband and I from seeking full-time employment. You had no prior knowledge of the guilt and feeling of inadequacy that, because of circumstances beyond my control, my children’s Christmas may be lacking.

You all knew nothing at all about what my family faces every day, and yet you took the time, the energy and your hard-earned money and chose to donate last weekend. What each and everyone of you did for my family and all the other families who will benefit from your generosity is amazing and beautiful.

You don’t know me but please know that you have my gratitude and my love this holiday season as well as the rest of the year.
