Tree of Light and Remembrance

Help illuminate the Tree of Light and Remembrance and the lives of those in need in our community

The Food Shelf, along with local civic groups, businesses, churches, our school district, community education and many volunteers, is proud to sponsor the Tree of Light and Remembrance, the Food Shelf’s biggest fundraiser.
Purchasing a light for the Tree of Light in honor or memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to cherish someone who has been an inspiration to you and your family.

This is the 15th year of the event thanks to Michael McGlinch’s wish to serve the community through the Food Shelf. It has grown into a beautiful tradition to support those in need.
