Raleigh Executive Director Ms. Dany Pen said, “We are very grateful that we were able to help over 162 community members during this holiday. We had some very disappointing news when another organization had reached out to us and said they would provide hampers and turkeys but then last minute told us they would not give us anything.

“It was heartbreaking because we had families in need already lined up to receive the hampers. But thank you to the generosity of the Montarsolo Family and Mrs. Marva Trott, we were able to go get all the groceries, hot meals, and children’s gifts.

“We were able to give out bags of fresh fruits, 8lb bag of fresh potatoes, 5lb bag of rice, fresh bread, cassava pie, mac and cheese, stuffing and gravy and so much more to our families in need.”
