On behalf of We Share Hope, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to two Scituate businesses who recently partnered to host the first annual “Summer of Hope” food drive for students facing food insecurity. New Day Planning-Thrivent, and Cindy’s Diner rallied customers and residents to help us collect nonperishable food items for summer distribution.

New Day Planning-Thrivent developed the project, reached out to local churches and businesses, and distributed reusable shopping bags for donors to fill, while Cindy’s Diner provided a delicious buffet lunch for all donors.

It was a wonderful day where we met many generous food donors from Scituate and beyond. Summer is a challenging time for students who are no longer able to access school-provided free or reduced-priced breakfasts and lunches. Thanks to this event we filled a van and three cars with a wonderful variety of nonperishable snacks and meals to share with students and their families over the summer.

Thank you for caring about our youth!
