Food pantry donations will again take center stage in the lobby next Sunday. As of a few days ago we had helped approximately 80 individuals/families since the beginning of the year through the emergency assistance fund and the food pantry.
Recently, with the help of some of our members who are active in the Salvation Army we standardized the assistance we provide. The sacks we hand out include: green beans, corn, peas, fruit, soup, pork and beans, tuna, jello, rice, dry beans, peanut butter, crackers, cereal, macaroni and cheese. Other food items fill up whatever space remains. We are giving out one sack to singles, couples, and small families; and two sacks to larger families. We’re using money that has been donated to the food pantry to provide milk and other perishables. We’ve been using paper sacks from Braum’s. The services of anyone willing to prepare sacks for distribution would be readily accepted. Donations of personal care items are always helpful.
