Volunteers collect food from shoppers
at the Richmond Beach QFC
The 6th Annual 4 Corners Food Drive for Hopelink, held Saturday, October 5, at the Richmond Beach QFC, was a huge success!

1540 pounds of food were collected, plus $125 in cash donations. That is record breaking - beating last year’s donations by 237 pounds.

According to a volunteer at Hopelink's food bank, this is a real bonus.

She said, “I know the food bank clients at Hopelink will truly benefit and appreciate the options all the donations will afford them. 
"Most of us find it hard to imagine how difficult it is to do without things we take for granted. Things like mayonnaise, or taco seasoning, breakfast cereal or milk. 
"Some of these are typically available at the food bank, but many of the things that can turn essential ingredients into tasty meals are not. 
"Donations can often fill a special need. Like the guy who loves clam chowder and is so glad to see it on the shelves, or the diabetics finding cereal that's not coated in sugar. 
"They all help make the lives of the clients richer. I'm so happy that our neighbors have been generous.”

As shoppers brought food, it was loaded in crates
for transportation to Hopelink
Thanks to Richmond Beach QFC for welcoming us at their doors and to the generous neighbors who so freely share their assets.
