 THANK YOU..

The Pantry Board thanks to all those wonderful people and organizations that contributed to our Christmas programs, Toys for Kids, Angels’ Angels, and Holiday baskets.  Your generous donations were such a blessing to the children and  our community.  Thank you so much.

Donations……

The pantry is in need of the following:
  • clothing for Newborn to 24 month old children (high need)
  • winter clothing
  • mens’ shirts
  • mens’ pants
  • jeans all sizes
  • sweaters
  • coats for adults and children
  • blankets and bedding
  • pots and pans

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.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Our Pantry continues to serve more and more needy families.  This past month we served over 1,645 people and volunteers donated over 1023.5 hours.  We helped 117 families for Christmas meals and provided toys/presents to 250 children and youth. We had 87 volunteers that donated their time for a total of 9,049.25 volunteer hours during 2018.  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.
