PPG Maintenance Department helps Pastor’s Pantry again

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!

Fried Chicken Dinner!

Many thanks to the folks at Clearview Baptist Church for recently hosting a Fried Chicken Dinner and designating all proceeds to benefit Pastor’s Pantry!   Thanks also to the many volunteers who donated their Saturday to help with the event. Every $1 raised enables Pastor’s Pantry to purchase approximately $12 of groceries for those who are hungry throughout Davidson County.IMG_0180 (2) IMG_0199 (2)IMG_0197 (2)IMG_0188 (2)   IMG_0205 (2)IMG_0206 (2)IMG_0202 (2)
