Thanks from Davis Community Meals

By
From page A6 | March 28, 2013 |

As we begin our 23rd year, Davis Community Meals wants to give thanks to the many in our community who have supported us during the past year. Their support allowed us to feed community members three times a week; provide shelter for those individuals who have none; house men, women, families and former foster youths in transitional housing programs to help them achieve self-sufficiency and independence; operate a resource center to provide necessities of life and financial assistance to many low-income individuals and families in our community; and provide safe and affordable permanent supportive housing to many with special needs.

We provided services to more than 1,800 people during 2012 and shelter and housing for 80-90 men, women and children each night during the year.

We want to give special thanks to a few: first, to the Rev. Mark Allen and all of the parishioners at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church for their support over the past 22 years and for the incredible renovation of their church hall and kitchen where we prepare and serve our meals each week.

To the Yocha Dehe Community Fund and the members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation for their extremely generous support of our programs this past year in the amount of $35,000.

The Davis Food Co-op, for choosing us to be the beneficiary of its annual Holiday Meal program and its $19,258 donation.

The city of Davis, members of the City Council and city staff for their wonderful support over the years. It is a model of collaboration throughout our region.

To the DeVaan Family, the Vespers Committee at University Retirement Community, and all of our community members who supported us through financial or in-kind contributions, attended one of our fundraising events, or who donated change in our donation boxes.

Lastly, to the more than 1,000 volunteers who assisted us this past year, preparing and serving meals, working at our resource center, staffing one of our housing programs, bringing food to our shelter residents, and all of the other tasks volunteers helped with. We could not provide the services we do without their continued dedication to helping the needy and homeless in our community.
