QQLA Board of Directors Meeting, October 13

From Don Taft, President of QQLA
Hello QQLA family
Summer is gone, fall is here, and before long it will be the holiday season. Last year friends of QQLA embarked on an effort to help those in our surrounding communities who are less fortunate. We were quite successful and made donations to local food pantries at both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
For Thanksgiving, the Brookfield food pantry identified a need for frozen turkeys (12-15lbs), bags of stuffing, cans of cranberry sauce and canned vegetables. The East Brookfield coordinator identified turkeys and food gift cards (Hannaford gift cards if possible) as most needed. They will use any surplus turkeys and gift cards for Christmas.
If you would like to donate something let me know and I will pass that information along to the food pantries, so that they have an idea as to what we can provide. I will start accepting food donations at my house the end of October (I will not be available to accept goods during the second week of November). I have a freezer available and can keep turkeys and food until we get it over to the food pantries prior to the holiday. Food should be here ready to go to the food pantries 11/12 – 11/20.
After we get past Thanksgiving we evaluate the needs for Christmas.
If you would like to donate please give me a call at 508-637-1458 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
