Letter: Food bank needs assistance

I would like to introduce you to our organization here in Kingman.

We are the Kingman Area Food Bank and serve those in need here and in the surrounding areas of Golden Valley, Dolan Springs, Chloride, Peach Springs, Hackberry, Valentine and those who are just passing through our town.

We are supported by donated food, donated cash, St. Mary's Food Bank in Arizona and limited grants at this time.

The donations are on the decline recently, including the government commodities. We appreciate any help the community and folks like you can provide. It is Kingman that supports us the most.

We ask that you consider a monetary or food donation to help those less fortunate. Donations can be sent or brought to 2930 E. Butler Ave., Kingman, AZ 86409. The phone number is (928) 757-4165.

Last year we provided food for 15,660 individuals and expect to exceed well over 17,000 in 2008. Thank you for considering our request.

We truly appreciate anything you can do.

Betty Kahlor

Acting executive director
