Homeless Receive Largest Food Donation (Video)
The homeless community in Windsor will be well taken care of this holiday season, with Street Help receiving its largest-ever food donation.
Administrator Christine Wilson-Furlonger says this morning’s donation will last at least five or six months. “I’m extremely overwhelmed. It’s incredible to see such a beautiful gift come in to know it’s not going to be such a hardship for us to provide for our people,” says Wilson-Furlonger.
Joe Quigg with Quigg International, working with Zehrs on Malden Rd., donated over $10,000 worth of food. It included several skids of things like pasta sauce, peanut butter, coffee and toilet paper. “When you’ve seen a look on a child’s face or a family’s face when they’re hungry, you’d know why we’re doing this,” says Quigg. “We’re hoping at least for the cold months they don’t have to worry about food at a minimum.”
Wilson-Furlonger says Street Help is still always in need of community support, especially for cash donations to help pay rent and utilities.
