Pantry board of directors thanks community for support

The Pantry Board would like to offer our sincere thanks to all of the community=spirited members of the Toby Tubby M.B. Church and the College Hill Presbyterian Church, who in the month of February served 374 families, for a total of 820 people.

Sincere thanks also to the The First Baptist Church members who served 465 families, for a total of 1,078 people in the month of March.

We offer our many thanks and sincere appreciation to Kroger, Walmart, and Panera Bakery Café for their food donations.

Our many thanks and hugs to our local Girl and Boy Scout troops, who once again this year, held their “Scout Pantry Day.”

As a result, our Pantry was well stocked not only with food, but also with monetary donations. We sincerely appreciate all the volunteers who help our clients every week with their screening and grocery shopping. Many thanks and appreciation to all of our donors for their community support of the Pantry.

Donate in honor of a loved one with a Pantry donation gift card. These cards are available at Origin Bank located at 312 University Ave.

The Pantry is located at 713 Molly Barr Road.

On Wednesdays for clients under the age of 65, and on Thursdays for clients 65 and older from 9 to 11 a.m. When dropping off donations, please sign the donor book and include a correct mailing address if you would like a tax receipt for your gift.
