Food Pantry offers quarterly report

Sunday, February 6, 2011

To the Editor:

The Clay County Emergency Food Pantry conducted its quarterly board meeting Jan. 30.

It was reported that 242 households and a total of 743 children and adults received food supplies during the month.

The pantry wanted to apologize to the community for being closed due to weather conditions as well as a shortage of select food items and personnel health problems.

We would advise the community that there are other organizations within the county that offer service for emergency good care.

The community is blessed with many who have compassion for the physical and nutritional needs of the county.

The food pantry has a policy of supplying food items on a monthly basis and remains committed to meeting the emergency needs when presented.

The pantry is constantly in need of donations of food, clothing and household items that are given freely to the clients.

There is also the ongoing need for volunteers to help in this ministry.

We are open to accept additional board members.

Please make yourself available to serve.

Our sincere thanks to the community for their financial support and all the volunteers including the director who attempts to assist the less fortunate of the Clay County community.

You are always welcome to stop by to observe our staff and inquire about special needs.

Thank you Clay County.

George Hewitt,
