Community Outreach appreciates support

To the editor:

The board of directors of Community Outreach Services, which operates the Kennebunk Community Food Pantry, would like to thank all of the generous people in Kennebunkport who supported the Election Day Stuff the Bus Food Drive on June 9. We received 865 pounds of food and $1,300 from this drive, which will be an enormous help toward stocking our shelves this summer.

This drive takes place twice a year and hundreds of people benefit from the generosity of Kennebunkport voters.

Our pantry continues to expand and the number of people receiving help remains much higher than any previous period in our 25 years of operation.

Food drives such as the Election Day drive are essential to providing for our neighbors in need.

To all the donors, thank you so much for your support of our neighbors in need.

Beth K. Jones, executive director
Community Outreach Services
