To the Editor:

The board of Loaves and Fishes Etc. wants to thank Sodexo, the Go-West Bus System, WIU students, other volunteers, and the community for a very successful Stuff the Bus effort. On Wednesday, April 11, the pantry received a bus-load of food donated by generous students and community members.  About forty WIU students unloaded the bus and in a line passed the boxes to places where items were sorted and stored. A special thanks to Anna Filson, who organized the activities on campus, and Carol Covey, who with others prepared supper for the volunteers. This event is the largest food donation of the year for the pantry.
This year Anna Filson also set up a fund-raiser for Loaves and Fishes at Buffalo Wild Wings on Monday, April 9th. Our organization will receive a percentage of the bills of those customers showing Loaves and Fishes coupons. We appreciate Buffalo Wild Wings for this event and the friendliness of their employees.
We are very fortunate to live in such a generous community with many hard-working volunteers and organizations.

Sincerely,

Janna Haworth, Secretary
Loaves and Fishes, Etc.
