Sun City golfers support Hart Pantry

Posted

They may swing their clubs for some fun in the sun and occasionally get a birdie or a hole-in-one, but the woman of the Quail Run Ladies 9-Hole Golf League also embrace successful fundraising projects for those less fortunate. Their most recent project to raise food and money for the Hart Pantry, an agency whose goal is helping at-risk teens.

Linda Liang, a member of the league, spearheaded the drive and hundreds of items that included everything from peanut butter and popcorn, to juice boxes and soup, canned and packaged, were donated, along with more than $600. The food items filled the back of her SUV.

“I am so proud of the women who are members of this league. Their generosity and their caring hearts, makes doing something like this so worthwhile,” Liang said.

Hart Pantry, according to its brochure, is a faith-based nonprofit community outreach program serving the West Valley. The agency provides weekend food bags for teens as well as snack bags for daily use. They also supply back packs and school supplies along with new and gently new clothing. They refurbish and donate bicycles and provide Christmas and graduation gifts to those who might not otherwise receive them.

“The goal of Hart Pantry is to reach local teens who do not have enough food at home. These young people may truly be homeless, living in shelters, with a friend or in a crisis at home with no parent or guardian able to provide care or protection,” the brochure stated.
