May Newsletter

April was quite the rainy month. But you know what they say, April showers bring May flowers! During the month of April, we provided food and essential personal items in 64 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.
