Attitude of Gratitude

All who participate in making our food pantry what it is deserve a big "thank you." It serves hundreds of people who need extra help during the month. This extra help includes food for working people who don't make a living wage, as well as all others who qualify.

I appreciate the businesses that support the pantry, as well as the organizations that raise donations for the supply of items needed. There are individuals who contribute, those who go door to door to gather donated food items, the meat processing plants and ConAgra that give food and those who give other items to our Community Pantry. I am appreciative of the people, also, who work there volunteering to do the hard work that needs to be done to get people in and out as quickly as possible, and unload the truck.

There are people who bring food from their gardens in their season, as well.

It is a great undertaking and a wonderful help to many people. Volunteering and service is our hometown America, now, and during all hard times.
