Food Pantry Opening Highlights
December 5, 2024
2of 3 openings are complete for the Christmas holidays. Today was busy as usual, and we fully expect next week to be as well. After the 12th, we will be closed for 3 weeks. We are open multiple weeks in a row to stock up families with food during the holidays. So many families today mentioned how they cooked their turkeys (received from us) and shared with family for Thanksgiving.
Fox Hall and Manor House held food drives are over the past few weeks. The support from our community has been wonderful and very appreciated.
Next week is our Christmas blessing! Families receive either a turkey or ham, poinsettia and an angel tree gift. We’re looking forward to seeing each guest and personally wishing them a Merry Christmas. If you’ve adopted a Christmas Angel please return under the tree by Wednesday, December 6.
