Pantry volunteers Don Hoover and Dean Hill visited area retirement
villages and nursing homes and came to the conclusion there is a
need for a special day just to serve the needs of these individuals.
Currently, the two regular days of Tuesday and Thursday are always
busy, and many canít stand or wait in long lines for their turn
inside the food pantry store.
This special date and time exclusive to seniors and the disabled
will allow the pantry to further serve the needs of the community.
Hill believes there are many in the area who need help with
obtaining food and believes a day specifically for seniors and the
disabled will be a more comfortable atmosphere for these customers to
use the pantry to augment their food supplies.
Volunteers will be available to help choose food items and load
groceries for these individuals.
The pantry does expect this new service to increase the numbers
of those who will use the pantry but has confidence in volunteers
and the communityís support to expand their services to this group
of local citizens.
For more information, call the pantry at 732-6644.
