Welcome to Miracles, the Loaves and Fishes newsletter! This is the program’s way of keeping our friends and supporters up to date on happenings at the program. It’s also a periodic reminder that we need your continuing support of our work serving those of our neighbors who need a free hot meal on Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays.
NOVEMBER 2017 UPDATE:
WE ARE THANKFUL FOR...
1. THE SPONSORS (LISTED BELOW) OF OUR NOVEMBER 19 MEAL
This November, we are thankful for all of the volunteers and community members that make Loaves and Fishes possible. Specifically, we are thankful for the sponsors of our November 19 Meal: Metro Police, Telemundo, Unique Cuisine, 107.9 El Zol, and Mercy Hill Church. These sponsors provided 100 meals, two chefs, and a lot of excitement to our program this month. We appreciate the energy and support of these organizations, and look forward to working with them again in the future.
2. THE DC CHAMBER MUSICIANS...
...and to all who attended the Loaves and Fishes benefit concert on November 12! We had a great turnout, and raised over $1700 to support the program.
Our top contributors were: Salesforce, Christ Church, Rockville and Gwendolyn Hemphill. Many thanks to these teams and to everyone who donated during our 2017 Funding Challenge!
4. PIE AND MORE PIE
We asked Loaves and Fishes Supporters to provide pies for a sweet finish to this year's Thanksgiving meal. Thanks to several days of hard work and preparation from our volunteers, and the contribution of many pies, our Thanksgiving celebration was a success!
