ENG and our community
2016 Holiday Gala
The room was full of good cheer.
Familiar faces, new conversations.
There were new friends and old friends and plenty of familiar faces.
ENG Hunger Coalition Group
ENG has started it's first Stop Children's Hunger group. The first meeting was held at our ENG office on September 12, 2016. Lunch was served with 10 clients and friends attending. We agreed the Pack-a-Sack program was one thing we wanted to involve our project in.
We joined Laura Johns with the Living Faith Community Church of the Nazarene and Schrader Elementary school to help buy food and pack sacks for every weekend of the school year. Our children need to bring home meals for themselves for over the weekend. Food for Friday night, and breakfast, lunch and dinner for Saturday and Sunday will be sent home with each child Friday afternoon.
14th Annual Spelling Bee
ENG was at the chamber of commerce 14th Annual Spelling Bee. Bill Stutz was not able to attend this year but ENG Team consisted of Kelly Gardiner, Jan Collins, Gloria Lakritz and Diane Gosk. There were no wins, but fun was had by all!
2016 Relay for Life
It was a beautiful day at the park for the relay where ENG raffled off two beautiful gift baskets. Our 20th year at NPR Relay for Life Team ENG raised $2,000 for the American Cancer Society donating a matching amount to the Hunger Walk for Pasco our charities this year. Diane, Georgie, Kelly Jan and Gloria were there from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tired but proud of the accomplishment.
Photos show our site, ENG's gift baskets, the Survivor Walk with Jan Collins on the left, and the many sites and Diane Gosk selling raffles. See you next year.
Shred-A-Thon 2016 benefits Relay for Life
The Rain Gods did not deter us from the Eighth Annual Shred-a-thon. It thundered and rained and flooded our parking lot, but Team ENG has managed to raise to date over $3000 to split between The American Cancer Society New Port Richey Relay for Life and The Pac a Sack Program. More news on totals will follow. As always friends of ENG came to help, Bill Stutz from Ash Brokerage, Anne Marie Ryan joined us along with Jan Collins, Georgie Levesque, Kelly Gardiner and Diane Gosk.
March against Chidren’s Hunger
On March 2, 2016, Team ENG joined the March against Chidren’s Hunger in our county schools. The event was held at Gulf High School benefiting One Community Now Inc. The event has raised over $75,000 to date. Our team was joined by Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano as our guest, to learn of our fight to stop children’s hunger. We are working diligently to provide for the Pac a Sack Program that sends needed food home with children on Friday with needed food for the weekend.
