June 3 Cans & A Good Time Event Recap!
This Wednesday was the 5th installment of the 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, as well as a great turnout! Keep reading to hear our big news!
New Hope Food Pantry is an emergency food pantry that serves families in Johnson, Miami and Wyandotte Counties. In 2022, they served 7,561 families. That’s 1,766 more families than in 2021. With the current state of the economy, that number has continued to grow in 2023. Just last month they had a growth of about 150 families, bringing their number served in May to nearly 900.
That’s where your support of 3 Cans & A Good Time comes in! Every 8 weeks or so we partner with other area businesses to throw this fun event to bring together the community and raise the most food possible for New Hope Food Pantry. At this week’s event, with your help, we raised an astounding 1,334 pounds of food, blowing our goal of 1,000 pounds out of the water! Thank you to everyone who attended and brought food! We are beyond grateful for your awesome support!
Giving back to the community is a priority of Team Real Estate. While this is certainly very helpful to New Hope, it nowhere touches what they need to fully operate. That’s why we will continue to hold this event! Please put September 20th on your schedule now so you can join us for the next 3 Cans & A Good Time Happiest Hour!
