Many thanks to all the helping hands that made the pantry Christmas Distribution a success! Whether you donated food or a toy or sent monies for us to use or maybe you even packed a food bag or a toy bag, it all happened because we worked together. 259 families received a turkey or a ham and all the fixings for albeit a quiet but sumptuous feast. The evening before food distribution, toys were distributed to 465 children. So with your support, maybe we were able to bring some comfort and joy to the many who come to pantry door.
Let us hope that this New Year brings some peace and some relief for us all.
Wishing each and every one you a year of good health and many shared moments of joy and wonder.

The pantry is truly fortunate and blessed. The generous support of the community has kept our doors open and welcoming to so many of our friends and neighbors who are seeking food security for themselves and their loved ones. Despite the weather, rainy and cold, on Saturday, December 18th, 291 families received all the fixings for a festive dinner. 342 children received toys. The pantry volunteers were truly amazing. Some not only helped with the food distribution, but stayed on to hand out bags of toys. All during the week volunteers packed bags of food and bags of toys in preparation. Know that you helped bring some comfort and joy to many a household this holiday season. Without you we could not have done it.
