We had a busy food pantry Saturday Feb 26! Tied for the highest number of people served! 324 people have been served at the food pantry since the start of the year. 16% more than the same period last year. Higher food and gas prices are not friendly to the family wallet. Our blessing box seems to be need of restocking more often now.
We have some faithful donors that drop off food and money each time the pantry is open. Other faithful donors stop by to place bags of food in the blessing box. Truly special people in the community that have no other connection to us. Their support is truly needed. This week we received word that we are being awarded a financial grant to help keep the pantry doors open. The pantry relies on the donations of the community, members, and grants.
