MIIS Community Surpasses Food Bank Donation Goal
The Middlebury Institute community collected 624 pounds of food for The Food Bank for Monterey County, whizzing by its 500 pound goal.
The campaign kicked-off with a presentation by Food Bank for Monterey County Executive Director Melissa Kendrick ’94 during the annual MIIS Staff Halloween party.
Naomi Braswell coordinated the effort and shared this message with faculty and staff:
“Simply put, if it wasn’t for our wonderful Staff and Faculty, we couldn’t and wouldn’t have made a dent in the much needed food donations. So thank you for supplying the can foods, dry foods and cash donations that we needed to make a difference in the lives of those who struggle with hunger, right here in our own County and local community. Your generosity will make an immediate difference in the lives of those that these donations feed and enable many to gather around their tables for a wholesome meal this holiday season in an atmosphere of dignity and respect!”
