SOUTHINGTON – Southington Bread for Life’s warehouse recently received a generous donation of food and household goods thanks to the generosity of the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Officials of the LDS Church, including Don Florian, arranged the collaboration between Bread for Life and The Bishop’s Storehouse, which is located in Worcester, Mass. This facility serves programs and people in need not only in Connecticut but also Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
In late June, several representatives of Bread for Life, including Executive Director Eldon Hafford, made the trip to tour the storehouse and meet Assistant Director Rowland Blake. While there, they received several dozen boxes of food to be used by Bread for Life to feed the needy in Southington.
“Bread for Life thanks the Latter-day Church organization for the humanitarian commodities. The hungriest in our midst may not know where their next meal is coming from, but we do. It is from the kindness and generosity of good people like you,” Hafford said to Blake.
