To the editor:
The Pine Island Food Pantry held its annual meeting Jan. 17. Homer Gutierrez from the Harry Chapin Food Bank was the guest speaker. President Dave Grueser received high praises for a job well done. Dave, in turn, thanked all the volunteers, and Kent Hines, vice president; Ellen Wolf, secretary; Barbara Vadas, treasurer; and Pam Stark, director for their commitment.
Thank you to the many, many organizations and individuals who give so generously so our shelves remain stocked, answering the call to feed the hungry on Pine Island and Matlacha. The greatest need occurred during the months of June - November. In 2012, the pantry served 5,037 clients. If you have a need or want to donate call 239-246-0039 and leave a message.
