CHANGE FOR CHANGE IN MAY GOES TO
THE FOOD PANTRY
It has come to our attention that the Board of Directors at The Food Pantry faced some tough decisions recently. Due to a drop in donations and available funds, The Food Pantry has determined the necessity to make drastic adjustments in their distribution practices. Some of these changes include no longer purchasing bar soap, orange juice and other items for families in need. They also will be reducing the amount of canned fruit distributed to one can per visit. As another way to cope with the shortfall, income eligibility changes will occur, resulting in people who are eligible for their support to no longer have access to this vital service.
As a way to help our neighbors, the Social Ministry Committee is designating The Food Pantry as our May Change for Change recipient. This information has surprised some of us on the committee. Let’s help The Food Pantry so that these changes are temporary, at best. Please drop checks, cash or coins into the Change for Change container located in the Sanctuary. We hope that you can respond favorably to our appeal for donations for The Food Pantry so they can provide food for our community’s most vulnerable children, families and elderly residents.
