With summer now behind us and as the days get cooler, we move into fall. Families will begin to rely more on our Pantry for assistance and food. The onset of colder days and increased heat and utility costs will tax the resources of many of our clients.

Here is an excerpt of a letter from a client of the Assistance program. For this person your generosity made all the difference: “Thank you so much for your help. It is very comforting to see non-judgmental people in the world. Your kindness and generosity is appreciated more than words can say! Your support is helping me through one of the most difficult times of my life and I can’t thank you enough! My only wish is that I will be able to repay you! Thank you again.”
Can you imagine such a feeling of helplessness? The Pantry is here for people in these times when they have nowhere else to turn.
