The Pantry Summer Food Drive Fun!

Summer is one of the hardest times of the year for families in need. When school recesses, many children in our community are vulnerable to undernourishment and hunger.

We have been having lots of fun with The Pantry Food Drives this summer. In June, you donated 1,353 boxes of cereal, beating our goal by 353 boxes. Then in July we set a 1,500 pasta items goal and you responded with an amazing 2,215 items of pasta. That really is “oodles of noodles!” Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to feed over 100 families each week at The Pantry this summer. So are you ready for our next fun food drive?

PB & J Drive TeaserThe Pantry August Food Drive – PB & J!

A yummy PB&J is an all time favorite food for kids of all ages. Drop a few extra jars of peanut butter and jelly in your shopping cart this week and help us reach our August food drive goal of 2,000 jars.

Donations may be dropped off at Hamilton Mill UMC from 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday through Thursday or on Sunday mornings before and after worship services at 8:15am, 9:30am and 11:00am. You may also make a monetary donation online by clicking here. 

While we are focusing on PB & J during the month of August, please remember that we would love additional food donations as well. Our most needed items include: canned fruit, cereal, canned meats and soups with meats.

Thank you for your support! Together we can make a difference!
