From Laurie Fergusson…
Helpline distributed 85 Kids Pantry bags each of the last 9 weeks, with 23 weeks to go! Kid’s pantry bags will be even more necessary when schools close for the summer and lunches are no longer available. There is food enough for Kid’s Pantry bags for the next week. Most needed items in the Kid’s Pantry are juices, granola bars, trail mix in individual packages and fruit cups.
Canned fruits, vegetables and complete meals are needed to help replenish the outdoor pantry, which is primarily used by homeless people. Please be sure your cans have flip (pop) tops. So many families are being supported by helpline, through the generosity of the community. Your brown paper grocery bags help as well as Helpline doesn’t need to spend more money to distribute food.
Please continue to give generously as so many are without. The Covid 19 crisis is not overand many of our neighbors need our help. The basket remains on the Fergusson’s front porch at 13072 Phelps Rd NE. You are encouraged to donate at any time of day with no personal contact!
Thank you to all who have given and to those who will give. If you aren’t able that’s alright, offer a prayer for those distributing and for those in need. May the Lord bless and keep you all, Laurie
