Dear Friends:

Helping Hands Network would like to thank the many community members who saved their Acme receipts for our participation in Acme's Community Cash back program. We collected receipts totaling $3036.29. We will receive 5 percent or $151.81 from your efforts. In 2016 we averaged $.08 per meal in food purchased from the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank. At that price we will be able to provide approximately 1897 meals for our neighbors in need!

We strive to be excellent stewards of the money we receive. The amount of food we are able to purchase from the Food Bank depends on what is available and the cost. Our goal is to make our money go as far as we can while providing wholesome, nutritious food. We invite you to stop in and see our food pantry anytime.

Again, Thank you for your support with the Acme Community Cashback program. Sincerely,

Becky Larson, Director

Helping Hands Network
