As we mentioned in our recent newsletter, we’ve received great support from individuals, groups, and businesses in the Wachusett region. The support continues this month as Sweets and Java partners with Joseph’s Project to collect food and household items for our families.
Go to Sweets and Java, pick up and fill a grocery bag, and return it to the shop. You’ll be entered into a raffle for a $50 S&J gift card. More importantly, you’ll show how the community works to take care of each other.
Thanks to all who’ve helped by their gifts and words and deeds.
The runners, volunteers, and sponsors weren’t deterred by snow and ice. Through your efforts, the Holden Road Race raised more than $20,000 to benefit area charities.
Joseph’s Project received a donation of $6003, the largest single contribution that we receive all year.
Thanks to you and yours for what you do to help us make our work possible.
There’s a nice write-up about Joseph’s Project in The Landmark: Joseph’s Project delivers on food, hope.
The Wachusett Area Chamber of Commerce will support Joseph’s Project through its annual Holiday Gathering. Party-goers can bring cash or gift cards to help us help our family.
While you’re getting ready for the Holden Road Race in support of Joseph’s Project, keep in mind that our Third Annual Shamrock Shuffle will come around at the other end of winter. Our Shamrock Shuffle will take place on a special day because March 14, 2015 will be a once-in-a-century thrill for math geeks.
Thanks again for all you do.
The Holden Road Race will take place on Thanksgiving, November 27, 2014. The Holden Road Race committee is donating their proceeds to four area nonprofit organizations, including Joseph’s Project. By running in the Holden Road Race, you can help to feed area families. Click on over to the Holden Road Race website for more information and to register for the race.
Our thanks go out to all of you who joined in our Halloween party. Special thanks go to the good folks at the Manor Restaurant for their hospitality and to the donors who gave us such great gifts.
With your generosity and good spirit, we can continue to deliver food to families in need.
