The first annual LexingCon event was a huge success! The event was held the weekend of April 4th and 5th, 2014 at the YMCA of Lexington NC and it focused on “Celebrating the Art of Comics”! Thanks to the generosity of this group, a financial donation was made to Pastor’s Pantry that will enable us to provide food for a significant number of individuals and families who are hungry in our local communities. They also donated food and two wonderful pieces of art, which we will proudly display in our offices. We sincerely appreciate the generosity of this organization and look forward to joining them in 2015 for the Second Annual LexingCon event!
Be sure to check out the Kentucky Derby hat collection at Black Dog Emporium in Lexington this month! They have a nice selection of hats for women and men, and will donate a percentage of the proceeds from hat sales in April to Pastor’s Pantry! Hope to see everyone at our Derby event on May 3rd!
Maintenance Department employees at the Lexington PPG plant are generous, longtime supporters of Pastor’s Pantry.
Last week during the startup of a new tank at the plant, Maintenance Department member Tommy Huffman set up his “slushy” machine in a break room and invited PPG employees to make a donation to Pastor’s Pantry in exchange for a frozen drink. The machine offered delicious flavors like orange mango and red Gatorade.
In just three days, the department raised $441, which members presented to Pastor’s Pantry executive director Bill Keesler this morning (Wednesday, April 9). The Pantry can stretch that money to buy more than $5,000 worth of food for hungry clients.
Thank you once again to PPG and its Maintenance Department for being such great friends of Pastor’s Pantry!
