This will be the third food drive we have held in the past 18 months. In the first 2 drives we collected over 3,000 pounds of food from the generous people of the Norwich area. The food goes to restock the Gemma E. Moran United Way Labor Food Center.
Since 1988, the Gemma E. Moran United Way Labor Food Center, located in New London, has played a key role in providing one of the building blocks to a good quality of life by feeding food insecure individuals and families all across our community.
On her way out she stopped, dropped a can of soup in our carriage, and stated, "I realized while I was shopping that there is always someone worse off than myself"
THAT is the spirit that the food center was built on.
If you can help, please come by Saturday. Donate what you can, be that food, time, or both.
I guarantee you that you will get back more than you give.
