The Christmas spirit is alive in the greater Wausau area! Peyton’s Promise advocates, local businesses and volunteers have been busy stocking the shelves of local food pantries.
For November and December, AbbyBank pledged to match a total of $2,000 in donations to Peyton’s Promise. On December 12th, AbbyBank presented a check with a grand total of over $5,308 for the total money raised with the AbbyBank challenge along with the Elves Stocking the Shelves event. This program provided 110 holiday meals and filled the shelves at the Covenant Community Presbyterian Church, Christ Community Church, The Salvation Army, St. Agnes Church and The Neighbors’ Place food pantries.
“I can not believe how one food drive can grow into such an AMAZING organization working together to keep our pantry shelves FULL!!! Thank you all for Making the World a Better Place!,” states Peyton Medick from Peyton’s Promise.
