Food Pantry president praises community

Sunday, September 12, 2010

To the Editor:

The Clay County Emergency Food Pantry is experiencing an increased demand for food household supplies, clothing and furniture.

During the months of July and August, a total of 546 households were serviced, including 969 adults and 539 children. A total of 3,938 bags of food were distributed.

The pantry is very appreciative for donations from individuals and churches, both in cash and goods.

We have also received a large quantity of fresh vegetables and fruit. Kroger has been very generous in providing bred, rolls, cookies, etc.

The need is great in this community and we know the need with be increased with the coming winter weather.

The continued support and goodwill for this ministry will be greatly appreciated. We continue to recruit volunteers, both men and women.

Our hours are daily, 9 a.m.-noon. Please stop by and experience first-hand this ministry to the less fortunate in Clay County.

Thanks to all who are sharing out of their abundance for these needs.

George Hewitt, President,

Clay County Emergency Food Pantry
