+ Big hearts
Big Cat Habitat’s Jam Out Hunger event was overflowing Sunday, with guests, volunteers and — most importantly — food. Thanks to the generous donations of the hundreds of families that attended the one-day drive, Big Cat Habitat collected more than $4,000 and 9,400 pounds of food to donate to All Faiths Food Bank. There was so much food, in fact, the volunteers had a difficult time transporting it all. But spokeswoman Laura Coyle, marketing director at All Faiths Food Bank, couldn’t be happier.
“What a great problem to have,” says Coyle.
