"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you. The River was a source of comfort for me a few years back when I lost a job. Before that, like many people seem to, I thought a food pantry was only for "bums". I was ashamed to go. But once there, I saw the people there were just like me - people who had simply fallen on bad luck, were having trouble making ends meet. It was a very respectful place, free from judgment. Thank you."

Thieves strike The River's Air Conditioning

Last week, copper thieves stole piping and condensers from two of The River's industrial air conditioning units. There have been some very hot days in The River's warehouse lately, making keeping food a safe temperatures a challenge.

Thankfully, crews will be here in a few days to fix the remaining unit and install two upgraded units on the roof to make them less susceptible to vandals. If you'd like to help The River cover some of the cost, donations are most welcome (make them online by clicking here).

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
- Matthew 25:35-36
