Mill Creek Women’s Club members Lynn Moody, Jeannette Bliss and Kathleen Corbiere were on hand recently to present to Jennifer Boyington, Hope Creek Charitable Foundation Global Director, a check for $2,500 to go towards purchasing building supplies to construct a new building for the Mill Creek Food Bank located at Gold Creek Church in Mill Creek.
In 2021 the food bank will double the number of meals served from 60,000 to 120,000. And they anticipate a significant increase for 2022.
According to Jennifer the new building will greatly improve their ability to feed more people, store more food, have the delivery services take place indoors and improve the efficiencies of their operations.
They anticipate the cost of the project will be approximately $160,000 and hope to have the building completed and operational by March of 2022.
