Thank you for your continued level of extraordinary generosity. As part of this month’s collection (July 2021), neighbors donated 1,929 pounds of food. They also included envelopes containing a total of $1,000 in checks, which we delivered to CORA food pantry, and an additional $630 in online donations were also contributed to CORA as part of this month’s neighborhood collection. In addition to the contributed food weight, the total amount of cash donations by residents this month was $1,630.
We owe a big thank you to out May 2021 collectors and the drivers/loaders who each collected portions of the food contributions to CORA: Matt & Phyllis Alexander, Jon Darling, Dan Freehling, Jess Fearrington, and Ken Indyk. As always, Travus and Reggie on the CORA truck were great too.
COVID – 19:
Fearrington Village residents have contributed a total of $37,858 via direct online donations to CORA since March 2020, when the pandemic began and many other residents have mailed their own checks to CORA.
