Successful Greenwich United Way Sole Sisters Town-Wide Food Drive Yields Nearly 900 Meals for Neighbor to Neighbor

GREENWICH, Conn., MAY 8, 2024 – Led by the Greenwich United Way (GUW) Sole Sisters, a recent town-wide food drive for Neighbor to Neighbor amassed 1,000 pounds of groceries for nearly 900 meals. The early April drive was particularly successful thanks to the various local businesses and organizations including Greenwich Academy and Sacred Heart coming together to collect donations across town, helping Neighbor to Neighbor restock its shelves following the holidays.

GUW is committed to collaborating with local organizations to educate Greenwich residents on food insecurity and more specifically local food challenges. The Neighbor to Neighbor food bank is a critical resource in town and is invaluable to the many residents who might otherwise be unable to provide adequate supplies for their families.

“Neighbor to Neighbor is a vital partner in our mission to help the most vulnerable in our town and it provides residents with their most fundamental needs,” said David Rabin, CEO of Greenwich United Way. “We are grateful to the many businesses and organizations across Greenwich that allowed us to expand our Sole Sisters food drive and engage more of our community, empowering our most successful food drive to date.”

“On behalf of Neighbor to Neighbor, I extend heartfelt gratitude to the Greenwich United Way for their dedication and commitment to helping our neighbors in need,” said K. Brent Hill, Executive Director of Neighbor to Neighbor. “Donations from this community drive go directly in the hands of those who need it most. Together we will continue to make a difference in the lives of those facing food insecurity.”
