July Newsletter

Happy July! During the month of June, we provided food and essential personal items in 88 different cases helping families and individuals in need. Our food pantry is open Monday through Friday from 9-3. If you or someone you know is in need of food, please give us a call to schedule a pick up.

Thank  You!
Thank You, Common Roots Foundation.  Your grant will help us provide shoes to children through our Feet First program so they can play at recess, learn in gym, explore the outdoors, and put their best foot forward.  Congratulations to all the grant awardees and the awesome projects funded!  We are in good company.

Outdoor Fridays
Have you stopped by to check out Outdoor Fridays yet? We’ve had several agencies come and table this past month, including AHI’s Health Home and EASE programs, Warren County Public Health, and a representative from Fidelis. The team from Warren County Public Health provided information on several important topics, such as sun and bike safety. They also brought these awesome tick removal kits and information books. I’ve already used mine!

Stop by any Friday, weather permitting, to check out what other agencies and information is available. And if you’re from an agency looking to host a table, reach out to set up a date!
