Food Pantry Report September 2020

September 16, 2020

Use of the pantry continues to be strong, especially when compared to 2019.   August of this year we served 95 more clients than were served in 2019.  The hours of operation remain Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11AM to 1PM.

Now that school’s back in session many volunteers who were students, parents, or teachers are no longer able to volunteer. Anyone who would like to volunteer can contact St. John’s Social Media Director Jessica at socialmedia@sjlch.org.

  • Volunteers begin at 10 AM each day to get ready for clients arrival between 11 AM and 1 PM.
  • Plus we have a team on Monday nights at 5:30 PM that moves inventory to get ready for the week.
  • Additionally, there is a team on Tuesday afternoons at 1 PM as we receive donations for the week on Tuesdays.  Please consider any of these opportunities to serve.

If you or anyone you know is dropping off donations please be sure to do so only during regular hours of operation.  Recently we found donations had been left at two different locations.

  • Unfortunately, the local squirrel population got to the one donation before we could get to them.

Donors and clients should enter the north driveway (has the “ENTER” sign), go past the playground on the left and stop at the double doors on the left.  Donating between 10 AM and 10:45 AM will avoid getting in line with the clients.  We have volunteers who can help unload your donation.

We are extremely grateful for all your support that has allowed this service to our community to meet the growing demands in these unique times.
