Dear Friends at United Way of Windham County,
Thank you for the donation to Our Place. The support we receive from you and other caring donors helps us help our neighbors who are struggling to nourish themselves and their families. Due to the recent public health crisis we have changed our operations to keep both our employees and clients safe. We are now serving only To Go meals and our staff fills boxes with a variety of groceries for people to take home. Your generous donation makes it
possible for us to continue to:
- Prepare and serve more than twelve thousand nutritious meals each year in our dining room or as to go meals for people to have for supper.
- Provide free groceries to more than 200 different households each month either in our food pantry or in the 35 home deliveries of groceries that are made by volunteers to seniors in their homes.
- Collect, store and distribute thousands of pounds of fresh produce from local farms that would otherwise be wasted in our community.
-Lisa Pitcher, Executive Director
These are indeed unprecedented times!
On behalf of the Westminster Cares Board of Directors, we'd like to express our sincere appreciation to you and the United Way of Windham County's COVID-19 Response
Fund for your extraordinary generosity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your grant will assist us as we work to support older adults who are most at risk in our community.
Although we have had to restrict many of our programs and services to protect the safety of our clients, we continue to deliver Meals-on-Wheels five days per week and our
Community Nurse is working extra hours providing support and public health education by phone to high risk seniors in Westminster. Your support at this time is especially
impactful as we have just made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Garden Tour, our major fundraising event.
With such generous support, we will weather this storm and adapt to our "new normal". We remain dedicated and committed to creating HOPE in our community of Westminster, and we are deeply grateful for your gift.
-Donna Dawson, Director
We would like to thank United Way for its generous donation to Putney Community Cares. Your donation is greatly appreciated. We
continue to serve Putney's children and families during this difficult time -helping
families' access healthcare, emergency funds and social services, as well as
collaborating with Putney Central School to provide family counseling, warm clothing, financial support for after-school programs and help with health issues.
We exist to serve Putney's families, and we depend on the support of the
community to serve our mission. On behalf of the board of Putney Community Cares we thank you again for providing that support.
