Food Share would like to thank all the businesses, organizations and individual donors in our community that helped make the holiday food and fund drives so successful. The holidays and end of year are a traditional time of giving and the generous support we received means we can continue our mission to alleviate hunger in Lincoln County. One such generous donation came from an unexpected source: we received 52 lbs. of canned food and $110.00 from a child, named Caroline, who celebrated her 7th birthday in mid-December. She asked her friends and family to donate food and money to Food Share instead of buying her birthday presents. Her sister, Charlotte, did a similar thing for the local library for her birthday. It is inspiring to see such generosity at a young age.
