To the Times of Ti:
The volunteers of the Ticonderoga Food Pantry have received with sincere appreciation, the results of two recent food drives.
The postal workers drive was very successful. We wish to thank everyone involved in that, event. We know it is extra work for the postal employees and their effort is appreciated. We thank the residents of Ticonderoga and Putnam who donated to this drive which helped restock the pantry very nicely.
The second drive was a student project supported and organized by the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership. In this project the TMSP volunteers and teachers used a $750 grant from the Stewart’s Foundation, then added $250 to divide among the student shopping teams. Each team was to purchase as many grocery as possible with their hundred dollars.
The goal was to help young people learn ways and means of shopping effectively and to assist the Ticonderoga Food Pantry.
We wish to thank, the TMSP personnel, the students and teachers for their time and effort in a most successful drive. Both of these drives were very helpful to our program as they came in when our inventory had become a bit low.
As a reminder: the Ticonderoga Food Pantry is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 until noon. We serve residents in Ticonderoga and Putnam.
Thank you most sincerely to all who have assisted our program, enabling us to continue out stated goal of provided good nutritious food to those who visit our pantry.
