CARROLLTON, Ohio (December, 2009) – Woodforest Charitable Foundation presents the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry with a $250 donation.

According to Policy Matters Ohio, over 2.8 million Ohioans, approximately 25 percent, do not earn enough to meet their basic needs.  Woodforest Charitable Foundation’s recent contribution to the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry will help support their mission of acquiring and redistributing food to those less fortunate.

The Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry fights hunger by reaching out to Carroll County residents in need.  Through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers and the generosity of the community and organizations, the Pantry distributes an average 4 tons of food per month and is able to serve over 250 households. “Thank you for your contribution to the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry,” said Shirley Lee, Treasurer of Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry. “Woodforest Charitable Foundation’s gift is greatly appreciated and used to assist needy families and individuals throughout the year and at the Holiday season.”
