Thank you to all donors and volunteers whose generosity made it possible to bring Thanksgiving to so many Charlestown families.
Harvest on Vine Fundraiser
at The Brewer’s Fork – October 23
Last Sunday, Harvest on Vine emergency food pantry held a fundraiser at the Brewer’s Fork in Hayes Square. Our supporters donated more than $9,000 to feed the needy families of Charlestown. The Brewer’s Fork furnished the space and provided the food at no charge, so all the proceeds will go to Harvest on Vine. Thank you to the owners, Michael and Kari Cooney!
As part of the festivities, we recognized Sister Kathleen Carven with the Harvest on Vine Humanitarian of the Year award. Sister Kathleen has been volunteering at the food pantry for many years. She is our spiritual anchor.
Before each food distribution, Sister Kathleen offers an inspiring prayer that she writes specially for that day, setting the tone for a God-centered happening. Her humility and compassion are contagious. We do our best to follow her example.
We are blessed to have Sister Kathleen in the pantry. Our clients love her. We all love her.
We at Harvest on Vine are grateful for your generosity. We are now getting ready for Thanksgiving, where we expect to give out roughly 550 turkey baskets with all the fixins’. We wish you a joyful holiday season.
