Webster Five Foundation has announced that as part of the Web of Caring to Make a Difference program, it will donate $2,000 to Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group (TEEG). TEEG has been working to meet the needs of low income families and individuals since 1988.
With its own Food Pantry, Diaper Bank, Case Management and Adolescent Mentoring Programs, TEEG offers these and many other services to support community families, particularly those with the most income-based need.
“Food insecurity is a challenge that faces many low-income families in our communities,” said TEEG Executive Director, Anne Miller. “TEEG combats these issues by leveraging community resources to create a food rescue plan. We are very grateful for Webster Five’s donation to our organization as it will help broaden our community reach.”
Donald F. Doyle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Webster Five stated, “We are honored to support TEEG and their efforts to provide a reliable support system for families in need in our community.”
