The annual Non-Perishable Food, Personal Hygiene Products, and Clothing Drive, will be held onsite during Gathering of the Vibes.
Sponsored by the Terrapin Foundation and the Gathering of the Vibes.
Food banks are more than just distribution centers, they are core to providing hope to the communities they serve. Similarly, empowering communities is the cornerstone of The Terrapin Foundation mission statement, and the number one reason we continue to run food drives.
In 2014, all food collected was donated to the Connecticut Food Bank, with a portion of the donations allocated to Bridgeport Rescue Mission and Crisis and Housing Services at The Center for Family Justice, Inc.
Past Results and Future Goals
Since 1999 we’ve collected nearly 48,000 lbs. of food, which is over 24 tons. The average American eats 5.5 lbs of food each day, so we’ve collected enough to feed 24 people fully for one whole year. Or, to put it another way, the VibeTribe has donated enough food to provide about 26,000 individual meals over 14 years.
Please “like” Terrapin Foundation on Facebook for updates regarding new activities and initiatives over the next twelve months, and repost to your friends to spread the word and good vibes!
We cannot do this without your help! Together we can help change the lives of those less fortunate. Your generous donations will make an enormous difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters in need.
