Thank you from MI Youth & Family Services

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you and your congregation for the influx of donations coming to the Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Food Pantry.
After the summer decrease in donations and the increase in use, the pantry was having difficulty meeting the requests for food.

With the recent donations from your congregation our shelves are filled once again. And with the current regional food drive we anticipate donations increasing over the next month.

We continue to welcome your donations, and if as last year there comes a time when we believe that our pantry is meeting capacity I will once again suggest that the donations be redirected to another larger provider in the area.

Thanks so much choosing to assist low income Mercer Island families through the MIYFS Food Pantry.
