Members of South Area Business Association partnered with Express Market by Festival Foods in Schofield, United Way’s Marathon County Hunger Coalition, Neighbor’s Place, and the Boys & Girls Club of the Wausau Area to donate Easter Food Baskets to area families in particular need this year – due to the previous (and ongoing) COVID-related measures that forced many thousands of people out of work and closed hundreds of businesses, financial and emotional hardship from which so many are still recovering even as restrictions and mandates are officially eased.
The great gift and promise of Easter is HOPE. No winter lasts forever – no spring skips its turn. Easter is a time symbolizing hope, renewal, and new life. While financial priorities have shifted for many, one priority that should not shift is whether to put food on the table for one’s family at this time of Easter celebration.
Express Market by Festival Foods generously provided food at cost to get things moving. SABA and other community members pitched in with donations to complete an Easter meal for each family with potatoes, rolls, green beans, sweet potatoes, and a pie.
Due to the generosity and hard work of our partners and sponsors, we are pleased to report that we were able to provide 85 complete meals to families in need, 11 more than our drive last year in 2021!
Thank everyone so much from us to you, for your consideration, support and involvement with this community effort!
