Thanks to many for saving food pantry

To the editor:

On behalf of the board and volunteers of Biddeford Food Pantry – and on behalf of the families we serve – I would like to thank the entire community for the generous outpouring of support that saved our pantry. When we learned in August that we might lose our home on Elm Street, we turned to you for help, and received an overwhelming response of love and support. On Dec. 21, we were able to purchase our building and we now have a permanent home.

So many people came forth with financial support, pro bono assistance and words of encouragement to support our campaign to buy the building. Although I cannot name them all here, I would like to thank a few: Hannaford Charitable Foundation, Heather Paquette, Anne Stern, Fred Marlon, Debbi Levitt; Dow & Coulombe, Inc., Michael J. Coulombe, Peter Deletetsky; Hull Law Offices, Rick A. Hull, III, Esq.; Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution, Phil Fearon; Gerry Boutin; Randy & Robin Norsworthy; George Burke; Richard Nadeau; Richard and Jeannette Lagarde; Martin and Amy Grohman; Russell Carlson and Robbie Fecteau.

You are all heroes.

Above all, I would like to thank God, who made this miracle happen. I assure you, with all my heart, that the glory belongs to God.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Donald R Bisson, president and manager Biddeford Food Pantry
