CAFC Thanks Andover Snow Riders

CAFC Thanks Andover Snow Riders

posted Friday, December 14, 2018

The Andover Snow Riders collected 189 pounds of non-perishable food and $591 for the Chester Andover Family Center Food Shelf and Financial Assistance Program at their annual December Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser. This special event was well attended by Andover and Chester residents coming together to enjoy a delicious breakfast and spend a leisurely Saturday morning catching up with old friends and making new friends. It was a wonderful way for residents to support their community.

This fundraiser will help the Family Center continue to meet the needs of families struggling to make ends meet. In November 2018, we experienced a 79% increase in requests for Financial Assistance compared to November 2017. From January through November 2018, our Food Shelf served 1,005 households including 2,135 individuals. Over 90 households shop at the Food Shelf every month for supplemental food.

Thank you to Nick and Steffanie Baker, the Snow Rider chefs, organizers and greeters and all who came to enjoy a delicious Pancake Breakfast and make a donation to the Family Center. Together we are making a difference in our community.
