Thank you from the Pantry

December was a very busy month at the Oxford Pantry for our North Oxford Baptist Volunteers. We not only asststed 506 families in need but we received a large outpouring from the LOU community. The food and cash donations from local businesses, clubs and individuals were abundant. Every week our volunteers were in receipt of numerous bags of canned goods and personal checks. We want to acknowledge the following large donors for December:

Oxford North Baptist Sunday School who provided over 600 loafs of bread,   100 Men of Oxford & Lafayette County, Night Owls Motorcycle Club of Oxford, FNC Corporate Employee Donation, Oxford University Bank Holiday Food Drive, Ford Center Gingerbread House, Oxford Middle School Food Drive, Woodland Hills Subdivision, and we want to especially thank My Oxford Storage on Molly Barr for providing the extra space we needed.

Many thanks and appreciation to Walmart, Panera Bakery Cafe, and Kroger for their food donations.
