Many thanks to Kathryn Kilpatrick who recently shared several hand-crocheted scarves with Pastor’s Pantry for our senior adult clients. These scarves are beautiful and will surely be appreciated by the individuals who receive them. Thank you so much, Kathryn, for sharing your talents with those in need!
The Student Council at Friedberg Elementary School in northern Davidson County recently organized a school-wide food drive and the students at the school collected food for Pastor’s Pantry! The original goal was 1,000 items and the “incentive” for reaching this milestone was that the Student Council teacher mentors would each receive a “Pie in the Eye” if the goal was met. When that goal was surpassed, the school’s principal (Sandra Everhart) also agreed to get a “Pie in the Eye” if the students could collect 2,000 items. The students quickly exceeded that goal as well – in all, they collected a total of 2,607 nonperishable food items for us!
The “Pie in the Eye” event occurred last week, with The Dispatch and WXII on hand to cover the story. We picked up 80+ crates of food on Tuesday, with the help of our loyal volunteers. We hope you enjoy the photos!
These types of events are significant for so many reasons. Please join us in recognizing the students and staff of Friedberg Elementary School for a job well done! Their generosity and kindness will help many in our local communities throughout the holiday season!
The next time you go to the movies in Lexington, please take a nonperishable food item along with you! Since mid-October, the staff at Lexington Cinema 8 has been collecting food for Pastor’s Pantry. Their project began as a “Fall Festival” event, but they have now decided to continue the effort through the holiday season. We appreciate this group of folks and their commitment to helping others! Please support them the next time you take in a movie!
