A check for $350 was also presented to Share the Harvest Food Pantry to assist seniors with commodities from their food bank.  They are starting up a new program to serve home bound seniors in all of Camden County.  Faced with growing health financial needs, seniors often do not have the resources to eat a well-balanced diet. The Community Foundation of the Lake is committed to helping our Agency Partners in any way possible and it is often in small increments that we can make a big difference.  This particular grant fits perfectly with our mission which is to connect passion to purpose and to address immediate needs of our most vulnerable residents. The CFL works with our Agency Partners and local not-for-profit agencies to address concerns of health and well-being in Morgan, Miller and Camden counties.
