Thanksgiving preparations began early for some Canonsburg residents, thanks to a generous donation from Shepherd's Finance, LLC based in Jacksonville, FL. Greater Washington County Food Bank Pantries (GWCFB), Canon House, and Canon Apartments have already received holiday turkeys or gift cards to purchase food for their Thanksgiving Day festivities.

"During the holiday months, the pains of hunger and insecurity take on greater urgency for many of our clients," explained GWCFB Executive Director Connie Burd. "Through the support of donors like Shepherd's Finance, we are able to ease some of the worry many families face during this season."

On Friday, November 14th, the team of investors at Shepherd's Finance joined GWCFB staff and volunteers to handout turkeys and gift cards to clients. Everyone received a warm holiday welcome. "Shepherd's Finance and their investors are making us shine a little brighter this Holiday Season," stated Kathy Kennedy, Pantry Liaison at the GWCFB. Kennedy, who works with all pantries under the GWCFB name, helped alongside Coordinator Kay Keen at the Canon Apartments Food Pantry and Coordinator Alice Bock of Canon Apartments during this holiday distribution. All were overwhelmed and appreciative of the generous financial gift that Shepherd's Finance provided the GWCFB and the joyful spirits of those who volunteered that day.

The Greater Washington County Food Bank would like to issue a special thank you to Shepherd's Financial for joining in the cause and helping families with food insecurities in Washington County. They were the first to donate to the CentiMark Matching Funds Challenge as well,which has the potential to help raise $100,000 for the GWCFB and their pantries.

GWCFB is located at 1020 Rte. 519 in Eighty Four, PA 15301. For more information on how you can support the mission to end hunger in Washington County, please call 724-229-8175 or visit the website at or on Facebook.
