April 3 Cans & A Good Time Recap
This week was the latest 3 Cans & A Good Time Happiest Hour Food Drive benefitting New Hope Food Pantry. Once again we had an amazing team of hosts and sponsors, and a great turnout!
New Hope Food Pantry is an emergency food pantry that serves families in Johnson, Miami and Wyandotte Counties. In 2022, they served an incredible 7,561 families. That’s 1,766 more families than in 2021. With the current state of the economy, that number is expected to continue growing in 2023. And while the number of families served increased by 30% last year, the amount of food donated in 2022 decreased massively. “We finished down 30,000 pounds of food from the year before, and our numbers went up. Basically what that means is we had less food for more people. So these events are huge for us,” said Caylon Humphrey. And not only that, but “Our budget is very low. We have about $600 a month to spend on food so we really depend on the community to come together and help.”
That’s where 3 Cans & A Good Time comes in! Every other month we hold this event with the hopes of raising a large amount of food for those in need. We partner with other businesses in the area to put on a fun event in order to draw in the community and raise the most food possible. We had delicious light bites provided by Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue, which was served by a few of our helpful Team Real Estate agents.
Giving back to the community is a priority of Team Real Estate, and with the help of our sponsors and all of the attendees who joined us, we were able to donate an incredible 872 pounds of food to New Hope Food Pantry! While this is certainly very helpful to them, it nowhere touches what they need to fully operate. That’s why we will continue to hold this event every other month! Please make plans to join us on Wednesday, June 7th for the next event! It’s sure to be a great time!
