BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Our Pantry continues to serve more and more needy families.  This past month we served over 1,221 people and volunteers donated over 882 hours.  We currently have 43 volunteers that donate their time. As a point of interest, 7,271.5 volunteer hours have been donated to the Pantry so far this year.  If you or you know of someone who would love to volunteer, just drop by the pantry to let us know or call us 719-347-3062.  We are in need for help in the clothing department to sort for the fall and winter season.

  Congratulations! Thank you to all our volunteers for your many hours of service to make our pantry such a valuable resource for our community. (Click here to read more and see all previous honorees.)  

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.

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS DINNER

A special dinner was held on October 12th to thank all of our wonderful volunteers.  We were treated to lasagna, salad, dinner rolls, and wonderful desserts.  Door prizes, certificates and candy were handed out. THANK YOU SO MUCH for YOUR DEDICATED SERVICE.

 

 


THANK YOU..

The Pantry Board thanks to all those wonderful people and organizations that have contributed to the operation of the Pantry. Your donations are a blessing to our community.

The donations for emergency food have been great from Wal-Mart, Loaf and Jug, Mountain Springs Church, Costco and the Manna Pantry but funding is needed to fill in the gaps when providing emergency boxes. A variety of foods are needed and not all donations come in well rounded nutritious portions.


Donations……

The pantry is in need of the following:

  • clothing for Newborn to 24 month old children (high need)
  • fall & winter clothing
  • mens’ shirts
  • mens’ pants
  • jeans all sizes
  • sweaters
  • jackets  and coats for adults and children
  • blankets and bedding
  • pots and pans
  • small children toys  

Our pantry is looking for a portable air conditioner to be used in the back supply room and a used refrigerated van or small truck for help in getting food supplies to the pantry.

If you might have those items and would like to donate them, please drop them off during our business hours at the pantry.


November  is

“National Roasting Month”, “National Pepper Month”, “National Peanut Butter Lovers Month” and “Military Family Month”.
