Every year before we volunteer for Empty Bowls, the Lafayette County/Oxford Public Library hosts our SOUP-er Bowl where we encourage our patrons to bring canned/dry food to help support our pantry. Well this year, we thought we weren’t going to be able to reach our goal of 300 cans… That is until a very special patron came to vist us.
Chandraleka Thompson and her two children brought in over 100 cansto donate to the pantry! WOW! This donation was almost a third of our total and we were delighted to help pack these items away for the pantry. We want to take this space and this special post and dedicate it to Chandraleka and other patrons who helped us gather supplies for those in need in our community. We are very very proud to work with such a giving and kind community. Thank you Oxford and Lafayette County!
