Deposits for Food presented donations to two Niagara Falls food pantries last week: Community Missions, and Heart, Love & Soul.
Pictured, from left, are Joseph Sbarbati of Community Missions, Sister Beth Brosmer of Heart, Love & Soul, and Angelo Sarkees of Deposits for Food.
The proceeds were obtained from D4F's collections of returnable containers and scrap metal. Total donations have now topped $70,000.
Sarkees would like to thank his family, friends and all of his supporters and donors, particularly Rob Morreale and John DeSantis of Collision Enterprises; Eric Matthews and Ken Bryan of Brickyard Brewing Company; and Doug Adamson and his staff at Porter Empty Return Center.
Those who would like to contribute their own containers or scrap metal can contact Sarkees at [email protected]. He would also urge everyone to consider including the food pantries in their generosity and volunteer efforts.
Finally, as always, he offered a heartfelt thanks to all who work at the local food pantries and food banks throughout Western New York.
