April was dedicated to recognizing our volunteers and thanking them for their dedication and support. The Freestore Foodbank organized a Volunteer Appreciation Event in early April to celebrate those who donated over 100 hours to us this past year. The 21st Annual Cincinnati Canstruction, one of our most popular events of the year, was held in April and it was a wonderful success. There were also some generous donations that came in to help us in our efforts to end hunger. As always, we remain grateful to our volunteers, donors and community partners for their support.
