A food drive and fund raiser will be held at Abele’s Greenhouse this Holiday Weekend to celebrate Memorial Day and benefit the ‘I SUPPORT THE 1%’, VETERAN FOOD PANTRY, located at the Harry Browne Airport, Air Museum Building in Buena Vista. This 501 © 3 non-profit organization is licensed to help veterans of all branches of the military in need through a well-stocked food pantry operation. The Pantry just celebrated our first anniversary and we are thankful for all the support Abele’s Greenhouse has given us in our first year. Here’s their announcement of the event:
We at Abele’s Greenhouse are busy getting ready for an eventful Memorial Day. We will once again be working towards supporting our local veterans. On Saturday, May 28rd, a local organization, ‘I Support the 1%’ will be joining us at the greenhouse. Together we hope to make people aware of local men and women in need who have served in the armed forces. For the last 3 years we were able to help local service people. We raised almost $4000 plus getting over 2 pickup truck loads of food collected in 2015.

This year we are more prepared and hope to increase that amount again. Less than 1% of the population defends the rest of us. Those men and women who voluntarily choose to wear our country’s uniforms do not want to disgrace those uniforms by standing in a food line. Too often, they simply go hungry or without monetary assistance for bills or medical needs.
On May 28th and 29th, the greenhouse will not only smell of flowers but yummy treats. We have a group of people donating their time, who will be making funnel cakes (those powdered melt in your mouth rosettes) in the greenhouse. You can even get a hot dog. We will begin our food drive immediately. The week before Memorial Day people can drop off food to help fill the pantry.
We also will have 2 different size flags available for a donation to this organization. Children will enjoy waving a red, white, and blue pinwheel. All money goes directly to the food pantry at Harry Browne Airport where Reservist, National Guard and Veterans are able to go for assistance. ‘I Support the 1%’ is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.

It is so easy to forget the real meaning of Memorial Weekend. Please help us help them by making a stop at the greenhouse this weekend. Volunteers from ‘I Support the 1%’ will be at Abele’s 8 to 8 Saturday and noon-5 Sunday.

Thanks!  We hope to see you soon.
