Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event.. to all the people who donated pre-event..to all the folks who took packs to get out on the streets! 

Thank you to Shinola for showing up again and helping.. this is the 4th year of their contributions and Ms Tiffany organizing it and Mr Chris collected over $500 for additional supplies for the event!! We are humbled.

Thank you to Tall Tony for driving all over the tri-county area to get p38 can openers and missing most of the event! He picked up water and other supplies too! 

Thanks to Krampus the night before and alllll the canned food that was collected that went directly into the packs. 

Thanks to the secret donor who helps us out each year at the event so we have cash for all the emergencies that come up!
