While Catholic Charities ran the event, Colerain Township staff worked diligently in organizing the site, providing traffic control, providing assistance with unloading the semi-tractor of food, distributing information to the community, and other logistical aspects of the site.  Kudos to the Colerain Police and Public Services Departments, specifically Lt. Chris Phillips and Public Services Director Jackie O'Connell!


"We at Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio have an enormous amount of gratitude for all our volunteers, the FreeStore Foodbank, the many local churches, multiple partner agencies and public service departments.  We could not do this work without YOU!  What an example of living in this together," said April Hoak, Food for All Coordinator. 


The impact to families, and the larger community as a whole, that are in need during the holiday season, in a year that has been so challenging to us all, is nothing short of spectacular!  Thank you, Colerain!
