Washington Helps Its People Food Pantry (WHIP) has been granted 501(c)3 status by the Internal Revenue Service and is now able to provide donors with written receipts for federal income tax charitable contribution deductions. Acknowledgement letters will be sent to each individual and business donor at the beginning of each calendar year in order to provide documentation when filing annual income tax forms.
WHIP is also pleased to announce its new website, www.whipfoodpantry.org, which was developed to assist both clients and donors.
In 2019, WHIP served an average of 170 families during its semi-monthly distributions. The WHIP leadership team would like to thank the residents of Washington for their incredible support of its mission: filling stomachs with food and hearts with love.
