Our Local Food Pantries Need Your Help

April 10, 2020


The Covid-19 virus has had a severe impact on the state's economy.  The last few weeks have seen a spike in the number of unemployment benefit filings.  Many of the hardest hit lack savings to tide them through until the economy reopens.  Our local food pantries are reporting increased requests and need donations.   If you can, please consider making a donation.
