Foodshare staff members, families and volunteers came out to support the Yard Goats and Foodshare Sunday July 2.
The night began with our Interim President & CEO, Jack Hackendorn throwing the first pitch. Members of the Development team were then presented with a check from the Ford Motor Company Fund in the amount of $57,000 which reflected their support over the past few years – a great partnership!
A group of passionate volunteers also engaged in the fun by collecting donations and educating Yard Goat fans about the issue of hunger at each entrance of the stadium.
They collected enough money to provide over 4,000 meals to people in Hartford and Tolland counties.
A huge thank you to the Hartford Yard Goats for supporting us in our effort to end hunger and help those in need!
