Spanish Speaking Center Food Pantry seeking donations.

This is Thanksgiving week and most of us are getting ready to enjoy the holiday with family - and to to enjoy a pleasant Thanksgiving Day meal.

But, especially with the economy in such a serious slump, there are many people and families who are struggling just to make ends meet.  That is why it is so important that are our local food pantries are able to provide people with the help that they need to put food on the table.

However, I have just been informed by Mary Sanders, Director of the Spanish Speaking Center in New Britain that the Center's food pantry is running short...
Our pantry is empty and we expect 100 people picking up food this Wednesday. ... [We] appreciate any help in getting the word out. Emergency Food Hotline 860-801-6344.
The Spanish Speaking Center is at 29 Cedar Street in New Britain and the main phone number at the Center is 860-224-2651.  Please feel free to donate.

Best wishes for a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!
