It has been several years since the November 18th Living Memorial Food Fund closed without a public acknowledgement, and for that I owe an apology for the dated nature of this summary.
I let the food fund effort lapse due to the difficulty on the Food Bank’s part to give timely and/or accurate accrued amounts. Their tracking software simply did not allow for the kind of reliability and accountability which I thought the fund and its donors deserved.
The last total I received from the Food Bank was in excess of $17,000.
I want to thank the many people who donated, including those who donated anonymously. Your generosity was a “Living Memorial” in honor of all who died in Guyana on November 18th.
If circumstances allow I will revisit this endeavor in the future.
