"Assisting people in re-gaining hope and a better way of life."

Last night was United Way's annual meeting. Other than facts and figures, UW also announced the winner and nominees of their local Cruikshank Award. Yes, we were nominated, which is such a great honor, but A Gift From Ben was the winner this year.

Here's a little nit about them:

A Gift From Ben is a non-profit organization established to honor the life of Thumper Newman's son, Ben, who passed away in a car accident. Our mission is to decrease hunger in the Williamsburg area by delivering food seven days a week to those in our community who are unable to provide adequate food for themselves or their families. We are committed to treating each client with dignity and respect as we strive to improve their quality of life by reducing their financial stress related to obtaining food.

We pick up food from five grocery stores seven days a week, and from local restaurants twice a week. Most of the food is delivered the same day to the people's homes.

We feed approximately 800 people each week through deliveries.
