Almost Home Group

Many thanks to the residents of the Almost Home Group in Thomasville for making several beautiful food collection boxes for us to use throughout the holiday season!  We are always in need of attractive boxes to share with groups who would like to collect food for us – and some of these boxes are already in use!

The Almost Home Group is a community of small residences for seniors with memory loss.  Located in the lovely Wallcliff Park neighborhood in Thomasville, NC the Almost Home Group residences offer full time live-in care as well as respite care.  Short-term respite care is available from a minimum of four hours up to a maximum of thirty continuous days.  The residents enjoy lots of activities and they LOVE to help Pastor’s Pantry by decorating donation boxes.  For more information about the Almost Home Group, please call Kathy Hatfield at 336-391-5638 or visit

Thank you for being such great volunteers – love those boxes!

New Volunteers

For many years, Richard Perryman has been very generous in offering his time and his equipment for our use at no cost to Pastor’s Pantry and we appreciate him so much! Monday morning we had some new volunteers (in addition to Richard and Tom Hart) who pitched in for the trek to Second Harvest Food Bank in Winston-Salem. Glenn Penninger offered his flatbed truck (and his time) for the journey and Hedgecock Builders Supply of Lexington loaned their forklift (and their Yard Foreman, Rodney Fowler) to help us unload the pallets of food.

What would we do without our volunteers? Thank you so much!
