The North Texas Food Bank has been on the COVID war frontline for the past 18 months by providing food non-stop for those in need. If there was ever a group that deserved to take a breather and celebrate its recent accomplishments plus its 40 years of fighting hunger, it’s NTFB CEO/President Trisha Cunningham, the staff and its countless supporters.
That’s why today’s announcement about the NTFB’s black-tie “Harvest” fundraiser on Saturday, September 11, at the Omni Dallas once again demonstrates that the organization’s priorities are for the good of North Texans.
We are disappointed to say that as a result of the progression of COVID-19 in our community, and out of an abundance of caution, the North Texas Food Bank is postponing its annual Harvest event until early next year. We were excited to be celebrating the kick-off of our 40th anniversary at this year’s event. However, the health and well-being of our community and supporters is our top priority.
“We have temporarily suspended table/ticket sales to the event and are working quickly to determine a new date for the beginning of 2022.
“While we are saddened to postpone our 40th anniversary commemorative event, we feel this is the most appropriate and respectful way to honor our neighbors, health care workers, and fellow community.”
Instead of feeling upset about the postponement, why not make a donation to the NTFB and/or sign up to volunteer?
