LINK would like to thank - 

  • Griffin Owens Insurance Group - they delivered food the entire month of December to our clients (over 80 deliveries).
  • Employees of Northwest Federal Credit Union helped organize the pantry on January 12th as a service day. 
  • Cub Scout Pack from St. Joseph Catholic Church organized the pantry as a group one day in January.
  • Students from Dominion and Park View High Schools worked with LINK volunteers (Ann, Andy, Monica, and Bob) to sort, date and organize food.  These students are in the ID (Intellectual Disability) and MD (Multiple Disabilities) classes.
