Happy New Year! We hope that you and your families enjoyed the holidays. We are eternally grateful to each and every one of you that donated holiday food and other items. Your generosity assisted us in making the Holiday Season a little brighter for a large number of the families we serve. A “Very Special Thank You” – to all our Christmas Sponsors. Christmas was a little merrier and brighter for a number of our families because of you.
“Thank You” – to St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church of Keyport for allowing us to use their halls. We used St. Mary’s hall to distribute the Thanksgiving Dinners Church’s hall to distribute the Christmas gifts and dinners. As always the KMFP Volunteers and others that offered their time as well, worked hard to make sure these two events ran smoothly and in an orderly fashion. We would also like to say “Thank You” to KMFP Trustee Dick Currier who donated several Christmas Trees again this year to distribute on the day we were distributing the Christmas gifts and several of our clients were able to benefit from this beautiful donation.
The KMFP was selected as the Pro Bono Partnership’s Project of the Year for the service provided by Volunteer Attorneys Serving Nonprofits. Learn more about the organization here: Probonopartner.org/
