News from the Food Pantry  December 2022

www.northcountyfoodpantry.org

This time of year brings new clients to the North County Food Pantry, and escalating food and fuel prices will no doubt mean even more people will be seeking assistance. Traditional sources have scaled back in their contributions to us, but the local community has filled the gap!  Food donations from the Elk VFW, and local churches have boosted our inventory in time for the holidays. It’s never too late to organize a food drive at your place of work, worship or recreation. Thanks to all who have supported the Pantry with gifts of food, funds, and their valuable time. 

     As has been a tradition for many years, the Pantry distributed 200+ Thanksgiving dinners as part of Tom’s Turkey Drive in late November. Cars lined up at the Country Church of the Open Bible (CCOB) for this drive-through event. It took many local volunteers to facilitate this give-away….those who transported the thousands of pounds of turkeys to the Pantry, those who unloaded our rental truck (truck rental was an additional expense for us this year), those who packed individual bags of groceries, those directing traffic, and those loading groceries into client vehicles. A special shout-out to the Riverside HS Girls Varsity Basketball team for their help! It was a festive night, thanks to the work of many, many volunteer hands.

     On Halloween night, the Pantry participated in “trunk or treat” at CCOB. This was a great community event with lots of activities (and treats) for families. That evening the Pantry distributed 30 pre-packed bags of groceries that had been assembled by members of the Riverside HS Honor Society. How encouraging it is to see students in our community volunteer their time helping others.

     It’s not too late to purchase 2023 wall calendars from the Pantry for just $7 each. This is a yearly fund-raiser for the Pantry. Stop by and pick one up for yourself or a few for giving. While you are at the Pantry, browse through our racks of gently-used quality clothing. We have a good inventory of warm coats, accessories and footwear for men, women and children. And don’t forget to look through our collection of Christmas decorations to make your home “merry and bright”!

     Lastly, we are still in need of someone to do light cleaning of our Food Pantry. Also, two of our volunteer “shoppers” have left the area, so we are really short-handed on Mondays from 10-2 (saying goodbye and thank you to both  Marge and Linda!). If you can help, please contact Sandy at (509)292-2530 during regular hours, or leave us a message.

 

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to our Neighbors and Friends.

 

New Hope loves donations! 

 

If you are leaving donations after hours please make sure they are under our roof or under the youth house deck roof. 

 

Thank you!
