From the Director – February

Isn’t the snow beautiful?  Enough already let’s have spring!!!   January was a busy month at the pantry.  We served 357 families and had almost 700 volunteer hours.  We had our first open house on January 22nd.  It was freezing and that was inside the pantry.  Thank you to the approximately 50 people who braved the weather to come see the pantry.  We had refreshments donated from Cousins Subs, Alpine Lanes and Walmart.  We plan on having another open house but next time in the spring or summer.  We are purchasing most of our food again.  There is a food drive going on at the High School until February 15th.  Please fill the barrels to help your neighbors.  The tables are full again at Pick N Save and Piggly Wiggly so please remember to purchase a pre-packaged bag and drop it in our barrel on your way out.  Your donations are necessary to keep the shelves at the pantry stocked.  Thank you for your generousity and keep warm!!

Julie
