Twas 2 weeks before Christmas

Written by board member: Shannon Fisher

Twas 2 weeks before Christmas and all through the bar,

Board members hoped friends would come from near and far

The Food Bank barrel was placed by the front door with care

In hopes that food donations soon would be there

Members started arriving with colleagues and friends

While visions of cold drinks danced in their heads

Some from ad agencies and some from PR

Had just settled in for a long open bar

When what to our wondering eyes should appear

But a full barrel of food long before the end of the night was near

With members and friends always giving their all

We knew in a moment they had answered the call

On soup! On pasta! On tuna fish!

On food upon food to fill many a dish!

The night was great, everyone had a blast

The only complaint we heard was it went by too fast

And we heard them all say before they drove out of sight

Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!
Food Bank of WNY
