It seems like every week we are thanking someone for something they have done for us! This week we are excited to let you know that our lobby is getting a facelift – UNILIN has donated a new floor, paint and supplies were donated by Sherwin Williams and Ricky and Lisa Everhart, and volunteers have been busy applying a fresh coat of paint! Here are a few pictures of the work in progress…more to follow!
We have learned that there is a tradition among some Presbyterian churches to celebrate “Souper Bowl Sunday” during the “Super Bowl” football game. On the Monday following Super Bowl, Fairmont Presbyterian Church and Meadowview Presbyterian Church dropped of food (lots of soup!) for the pantry following their respective events on Sunday night. We even found a nice set of keys in one of the bags! Hopefully, those keys have now been returned to their rightful owner. We extend our sincerest thanks to these churches for thinking of Pastor’s Pantry in the midst of their festivities!
Could it be that one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to find a worthwhile volunteer opportunity for 2015? If so, we may be able to help! Pastor’s Pantry needs volunteers and we could particularly use help on Mondays and Wednesdays between the hours of 10:00 and 2:00. If you would be interested in stocking shelves in the warehouse, selecting food from our shelves that will then be bagged for our clients (we call that “shopping”), or loading groceries in cars for clients, please contact us! We currently have a few volunteers who come in one day each week for a couple of hours to help with these things and we couldn’t get along without them – if you have questions or would like to sign up we’d love to hear from you!
