A New Way to Donate

If you shop on Amazon,  you can also donate to our Eastern Plains Community Pantry.  Be sure to use  smile.amazon.com  Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.  Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com


 

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.

 

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Our Pantry continues to serve more families in need.  This past month we served over 1,400 people.  We have 29 volunteers that donated 730 hours during the month of February.
