Please Remember to Bring a Food Donation!
Part of every Pagan Pride event around the country is a food drive. Each year, we donate the food to a local food pantry. The last few years we’ve worked with Groveland Emergency Food Shelf. This organization is a non-profit providing emergency groceries for those in need serving about 2,000 clients per month. Our goal for 2013 Pagan Pride Day was to collect 250 pounds of food for the food shelf, or the monetary equivalent. We almost made it! We collected 166 lbs of food and enough money to make it to the equivalent of 216 lbs. We were just 34 lbs short of our goal! So please remember the reason for the season and bring some heavy groceries. A lot of people will be very grateful. Let’s exceed our goal and break our own record this year!
