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 and more needy families.  This past month we served over 1,216 people.  We have 36 volunteers that donated 778.75 hours during the month of February.  We picked up over 5,000 lbs. of food to help our needy families. 

 The “Volunteers of the Quarter” is George Hoover. He volunteers every week and always greets everyone with a warm hello and smile.  George is one of our drivers to get food from various donation businesses.

  If you or you know of someone who would love to volunteer in any way, just drop by the pantry to let us know or call us 719-347-3062.
