Seasons Amherstburg helped brighten the spirits of those at the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission just in time for Easter.

Seasons general manager Brenda D’Alimonte, food services manager Beau Veldhuis and Seasons residents Joan Browning, Nida Agnositis and Matt and Julie Predki delivered 100 hams to the mission last Thursday afternoon.

“Each Seasons property did the same for their communities,” explained D’Alimonte. “It’s to help out around the Easter holidays.”

D’Alimonte said they know that the mission provides a valuable service in the community and that there are also seniors in the community who need some assistance.

“That’s what we’re here for,” she added.

Tim McAllister, president of the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission’s board of directors, said they had their Easter dinner Monday. He was thankful for the donation from Seasons Amherstburg.

“This is a big boost for the mission to receive this many hams,” said McAllister. “It makes us feel very excited. It’s great that Seasons was able to donate these hams.”

Donations are always welcome at the mission, he added, but it is special when donations come around holidays.

“At these times, it means a lot to the people we serve,” said McAllister. “Any time is good (for donations), but especially on occasions like Easter.”

McAllister added it was “hard to put into words” how much the donation meant to the non-profit organization.

“It means a lot to the mission,” he said.
