Food Pantry Needs
Greetings to all of you,

What a nice cool spring we are having. I hope you all have had a chance to be out enjoying it.
Traffic continues to be steady at the pantry. We seem to be serving about 35-40 families a week. Now that summer is almost here donations tend to slow down so your help will be invaluable.

Need list

baked beans
soups – beef, chowders
boxed mac and cheese
Hamburger Helper
salad dressing
canned fruit
personal hygiene items
household cleaners

It is not a long list, but the list reflects those items most commonly requested.
Thank you for you continued help and support.

We continue to be thankful for all your support and donations. It truly is a community pantry.
Donations may be dropped off at the church and will be taken to the pantry. Thank you.
