Want to volunteer?

Volunteering at our food pantry is a wonderful way to make a difference in the lives of others. On Thursdays, we need people who can lift between 12-1pm to help unload the Food Bank truck.  On Fridays, we need people from 2-6 p.m. who can lift. Any time you might have to offer during this period, especially any time between 4-6, will be appreciated.

Even if you can only come help for an hour, you will be blessed!

To volunteer with the Food Pantry, contact Laura Choate at lchoate2@cox.net.

Want to Donate?

We need non-perishable items like canned vegetables & meat, peanut butter, and personal hygiene items (toothpaste & toothbrushes, soap, etc.) and we always need gallon-size freezer bags.
