Demand at West Hartford Food Pantry Doubles

Posted by whforums on November 18, 2008

Just heard on the radio that Mayor Slifka told WNPR that demand at West Hartford food pantries is up 97% over a year ago. I’m not much for numbers, but I think that’s almost double.

If you can give, give.

Maybe also consider donating a grocery store gift card to one of West Hartford’s schools. I don’t know if this is frowned upon or no, but I’d bet administration will make sure an anonymous gift card winds up in the hands of a family who needs it.
