January Newsletter
To our Family of Pie-

Happy New Year to you all. Thank you seems hardly enough to say for all you did to help Pie serve our senior citizens in 2019. The numbers of food delivered, hours donated, miles driven and funds given, only tell part of the story, a big part certainly, but not the whole story.

The moments shared with our senior neighbors, the time spent listening to someone talk about the pet they used to have and miss so much; the tales from their youth that they haven’t had anyone to share with; their hopes and their fears, their laughter and their tears, the value in these moments is immeasurable and no one may even know about them, except for the drivers and those they deliver to, but they are the most important part of what we do.

It is because of what all of you give, whether it is your time, your talent or your monetary gift, that we are able to share these moments with the wonderful people we are committed to serving. And for that, thank you does indeed, seem hardly enough to say.

So let me say this, I am humbled by your compassion, inspired by your kindness and grateful for your generosity. I have the best job in the world. Every day I am witness to a community that comes forward and turns compassion into action by helping the most vulnerable of our neighbors. It gives me hope. You all give me hope.

Thank you seems hardly enough to say for all you do, two small words for such tremendous acts of compassion and generosity, but thank you for being the best part of humanity and for being a part of the Family of Pie.

Here’s to a hopeful 2020, working side-by-side to fight senior hunger in St. Johns County.

Gratefully yours,

Malea Guiriba
Executive Director
SEASON OF GIVING
Thanks to our volunteers and donors, all 435 of our seniors received numerous gifts this Holiday season. You can never know how much these gifts mean to these folks. It is love, kindness, caring, and hope all wrapped up with a holiday bow. Thank you to all of our Friends of Pie, near and far. We love you and we couldn't have done it without you.
FREEZER NEEDED
We are in need of a freezer, at least a 7.5 cubic inch. We have the opportunity to get more frozen protein, which is a huge plus for our seniors, but we need a place to store it.

Please contact Phyllis at 904-444-4667.

TAKE A SLICE OUT OF SENIOR HUNGER
You know it costs Pie in the Sky just $262.50 to bring fresh, healthy produce to low-income seniors in our community. We know that may seem like a lot, so we've broken it down to give you an idea on how you can help. Any way you wanna slice it, invite some friends, share with a church group, get your BFF on-board. It all adds up! No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
