Thank You and Congratulations
We Reached Our 10,000 lbs. Goal
Dear Friends and Neighbors-
We cannot say thank you enough! Over the last 10 days our first annual food drive eclipsed our goal to provide the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Panty with 10,000 lbs. of much needed food.
Collecting both food and donations to achieve our goal, the pantry now has access to the food listed below in order to support the more than 100 families that they serve each week.
- 2,116 lbs. of meat
- 2,000 lbs. of cereal
- 1,192 lbs. of canned goods
- 3,000 lbs. of cheese
- 2,000 lbs. of milk
- 1,132 lbs. of miscellaneous items, cleaning supplies, etc.
In total our first ever food drive raised 11,440 lbs. of food and other important items. We cannot be more proud of all of our friends, neighbors, and customers for joining together and supporting our community.
As we consider what “Doing Good” means for our community, both in these difficult times and beyond, we have realized in every neighborhood there are significant issues with people not having enough food to eat and to feed their children. We strongly believe that this should not be the case and we are committed to continuing to support the Aurora Area Interfaith Food Pantry and their fight to end hunger.
As we say thank you again, we wanted you to know it is our plan to make this an annual Aspen Lane Wine Company event in the coming years. Our mission of “Drink Wine. Do Good.” will continue to guide and inspire us to join together with friends to truly make a difference in the lives of people who most need our support. No child should ever go to bed hungry… for us it just doesn’t get more basic than that.
Our thoughts and prayers for your continued safety and good health go out to you and your loved ones.
Your Friends at Aspen Lane Wine Company
Bob, Sonya, and Tim
