For the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to be involved with a wonderful event in Milford, originally organized by my friends Kelly Wilson of Hare Hollow and Amy Eisenberg of the Milford Craft Show under tents in the garden of the Laurel Villa Inn. I have continued to be part of the dedicated group of volunteers from the Milford Business Community that organize it every year under the non-profit organizational umbrella of Milford Presents. This is a dine-around event, with dinner provided by local restaurants and prizes by other local businesses. No one goes home empty handed.
In 2017, thanks to the generosity of the 150 people who bought tickets and came together to celebrate the 10th Annual SHARE THE HARVEST Dinner in support Milford’s Ecumenical Food Pantry, we were able to present a van full of pantry supplies including essential non-perishable food items, baby foods and formula, toiletry goods and pet foods,and exceeding our goal donation of $2500have made a total cash contribution of $4,500 to our neighbors in need.
This year’s event is scheduled for Monday, September 17th at Saint Patrick’s Church Hall in Milford. In the spirit of giving, we encourage anyone who was unable to participate to make a direct donation to the “Ecumenical Food Pantry” – donations may be dropped off at any time and checks may be mailed to the organization at 321 5th St,Milford PA 18337, and to keep this cause close to your heart throughout the year.
