Interfaith of The Woodlands celebrated 50 Years of Service with a Day of Caring Community Wide Food Drive
Interfaith of The Woodlands commemorated it’s 50th Anniversary with a Day of Caring Community Wide Food Drive and Parking Lot Party on October 27th. Participating in this monumental Food Drive were local residents, schools, religious and civic organizations, retail stores and many more. Together over 6,500 lbs of food was collected for the Interfaith Food Pantry. With the price of food on the rise Interfaith has seen an increase in need in recent months. The food collected during Interfaith’s Day of Caring will ensure that individuals and families don’t go hungry this holiday season.
“Since the inception of our great community, Interfaith of The Woodlands has remained steadfast in our desire to bring people together in the name of service. We are able to serve thanks to the generosity of our wonderful neighbors who choose to take care of each other. How grateful we are for the miracle, we call Interfaith,” said Missy Herndon, President and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands.
The Woodlands Township has experienced tremendous growth over the last 50 years and Interfaith continues to meet the needs of this growing community through its many Programs and Services. In a special proclamation, presented by Dr. Ann K. Snyder, Chairman of the Board, The Woodlands Township declared October 27th, Interfaith of The Woodlands 50th Anniversary Day.
The 50th Anniversary Day of Caring commenced with a Breakfast Reception honoring a few vital community partners, including Commissioner James Noack, Mary Anne Whitney, Waste Connections Executive Vice President + Chief Financial Officer and, Interfaith’s Board Chair, as well as The Woodlands Township for their long-time support. Children from the Interfaith Child Development Center’s choir also joined the festivities by performing songs and helping collect food.
