Customers and volunteers join City Councilor Mike Ross (center); Jeanne Belmonte, ABCD West End NSC; and Serena Hsu Bray, Marketing Team Leader, Whole Foods Market, to celebrate the $1,200 raised at the “Wish-List” fundraiser to benefit the ABCD West End Emergency Food Pantry.
Thank you Whole Foods! ABCD thanks Whole Foods Market on Cambridge Street for heading up the outstanding “Wish-List” fundraiser on January 8 to increase supplies in the ABCD West End Emergency Food Pantry located in the Boston Public Library at 151 Cambridge Street. ABCD and neighborhood volunteers handed out “Wish-Lists” to customers, City Councilor Mike Ross helped pack grocery bags with donated items and volunteers from the North End Music and Performing Arts Center filled the store with live music! Customers donated more than $700 worth of food in less than two hours and Whole Foods Market matched that with a $500 donation. So over $1,200 worth of nutritious food items will now combat hunger for Boston seniors and others in need in the North End and West End. A great day by every measure.
