HELLO TO ALL,

IN LOOKING OVER THE PANTRY LIST FOR DONATED FOODS I THINK THE

FOLLOWING FOODS ARE MOST IMPORTANT;

JAMS AND JELLIES

CANNED FRUIT AND FRUIT CUPS

HEARTY SOUPS LIKE PROGRESSO

CEREAL

PANCAKE MIX AND SYRUP

INSTANT OATMEAL

CANNED CHICKEN

WE SO APPRECIATE ANY DONATION YOU MAY GIVE TO THE PANTRY.  THE NEED IS GREAT.
MANY THANKS,
JEAN PONITZ

Thanks also to our volunteers who put in many hours organizing deliveries, picking up donated food, stocking shelves, cleaning the pantry, distributing food and welcoming food pantry customers. Thank you Jean  Ponitz, who will be helping fill the shoes of Sandy Swartz and husband, Steve, who are heading to Florida for 3 months for some relaxation in the sun and sand.
