Thank You so much…
Thank you to all individuals and organizations who donated to our Thanksgiving and Christmas Meal Program, our Christmas Toy Drive and our Angel Angels Program. Because of your generous donations, we were able to make this Thanksgiving and Christmas season so much brighter for so many in need.
Thanks to our volunteers for all they do. We celebrated with a Special Luncheon where we served our volunteers. Reva Lopez and Anne Lopez helped with this special day.
Thank you to all our volunteers for your many hours of service to make our pantry such a valuable resource for our community. View our Volunteer Honoree page.

If you would like to become a volunteer at the pantry, please drop by and let us know. Volunteers are the key to the success of the Eastern Plains Community Pantry (EPCP). You can make that real difference in helping serve the people of our community.
The Pantry is in need of blankets and bedding, winter clothing, and coats for adults and children, We are also in need of books, and pots, pans and kitchen items. We are still looking for a used refrigerated van or small truck for help in getting food supplies to the pantry. We are in high need for clothing for Newborn to 24 month old children.
If you would like to donate, please drop them by the pantry. Small children toys are always accepted as well.
If you might have those items and would like to donate them, please drop them at the pantry.
