14th annual Tin cup challenge
giving period June 1-july 23, 2021
Even as Teton Valley strives to reopen,
the Teton Valley Food Pantry is serving more
people than ever before. The need for the food we
provide more than quadrupled in the last year.
Economic recovery here may be uneven which
means many people will continue to rely on the
Food Pantry for months to come, particularly as
housing costs in the Valley rapidly escalate. Our
goal is to be here for the long haul, providing food
security for anyone in need.
We are reaching out to you as a friend of the
Food Pantry to consider making a donation
through the Community Foundation of Teton
Valley's Tin Cup Challenge. As you know, many
of your friends and neighbors are feeling the
impacts of challenging economic conditions,
worsened by the Coronavirus. You can see it in
the faces of community members as they visit the
Food Pantry, many of them on a weekly basis.
In the past, the Food Pantry has been fortunate to
receive large quantities of food from food drives
and “Shop for The Pantry” events. Those options were on hold because the focus was on ensuring safety for all -- clients, volunteers and staff. Your donation will help purchase necessary food items directly and quickly from secure sources such as the Idaho Food Bank, Broulim’s, Family Dollar and US Foods.
You can help keep the Food Pantry shelves fully stocked, which is critical to ensuring folks consistently receive food. Your gift supports the Food Pantry’s efforts to provide fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, milk, eggs and other items based on preferences, dietary and cultural needs.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and future support. Donations may be made online at: www.TinCupChallenge.org or mailed to: Community Foundation of Teton Valley PO Box 1523 Driggs ID 83422.
With sincere gratitude to you,
Elaine Moehring, Board President Anne Fortier, Vice President Barb Larkin, Treasurer
