Note from the Pantry

979 households in 6 days!

That just may be a new record for us.

The 688 households we served for Thanksgiving is over 70 more than last year. To top it all off, we did it all outside and packed all the boxes ourselves.

And we’ll do it again for Christmas on Monday, December 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Tuesday, December 22 from 9 to 11 a.m.

Thanks to Bob Windsor, who navigated us back into Meijer Simply Give, from whence our 4,800 cookies came! Good to see Bob when we picked up the cookies. You see in the photo our “sweeties” framed in Meijer’s cookie box tops and our 20 + pallets of packed Thanksgiving boxes in the background.

Fr. Joe has done it again with the help of Richland County Foundation, $6,000 grant to provide a greenhouse for winter distribution. We will close Dec 2 and 3 to construct. The end walls will come later.

Error in the slips that went out, so we will be open two Wednesdays in a row (the 9th & 6th).

The Pantry will be closed December 2nd, 3rd, 30th, and 31st.

Thank you all,

Fr. Daniel
