It has been exciting in the month of September. So much food came in as well as some donations of clothes and furniture. We received the same amount of donation dollar value in just the month of September alone as we did from February to August.
We have in the year 2010 received over 125,000 dollars worth of food, clothes, and furniture (mostly food). These items have all been distributed free of charge to the people of Stockton. We now have 20 groups that we have given to and we are continuing to give to on a weekly basis. These groups are doing various things to reach out to the needy in the city of Stockton. Some groups give groceries once a week, every other week or once a month. While other organizations are helping the homeless through hot meals, shelter, clothing, or other needs. And still others are housing, feeding and counseling men and women who are struggling with drug additions.
A grocery store is now giving to us 6 days a week. With this donation we are able to help 6 different groups on a daily basis by giving to each group one day a week.
We look forward to the future. And Supplying Needs is still on the look out for a warehouse. A place where we can glean the food and not have to clear the truck out as fast as possible to make room for the next load. But for now we are excited about all the donations coming in.
