Vinnies says thanks

To the Journal editor:

The Ishpeming and Marquette St. Vincent de Paul districts want to express their deep appreciation to the Super One Stores in Negaunee and Marquette for the very generous donations to each district’s food pantry.

Thank you to the customers who donated their winning cards to the food pantries and the employees for their enthusiasm in raising so much money to help us feed the hundreds of families who come to SVdP for food assistance. We are blessed to live in such caring communities.

We also want to thank the many individuals, civic and private organizations, churches, businesses and schools for their generosity in donating food, toys and monetary donations to the Can-a-Thon and the Toys for Tots program.

We are serving more people than ever through our food pantries and Christmas programs.

Hundreds of families will have a wonderful Christmas with toys, games, books, clothing and more in addition to a special holiday meal. Thank you for helping us help others.
