CUP director Mary Stepleton was thrilled to report that CUP’s tally for the day was ten full grocery carts.  Postal workers also collected donations which will go to the West Ohio Food Bank for distribution to other area food pantries.

Stepleton offered high praise to CUP volunteer Suzanne Plumb, who organized CUP’s participation in the event.

Last month, CUP provided food for nearly 2000 people in Lima. The bulk of the organization’s support comes from its local church partners and events such as the USPS’ Stamp Out Hunger event.

The next CUP event will be a concert at Shawnee Alliance Church on May 28.  SIX bands will be rocking Shawnee Alliance Church, all to benefit CUP.

Doors open at 4 pm, and the music starts at 5. Donation of 2 personal care items for admittance.
