Good Neighbors Food Pantry continues service
The pantry distributed food to 65 families, representing 233 individuals, last Tuesday, March 17. In order to limit contact and maintain social distancing, families drove up to the door and picked up pre-assembled food boxes. The same process will be used for the foreseeable future. "We plan to do everything we can to continue to provide food for our neighbors in need," said Susan Conklin, volunteer pantry director.
"Thanks to our generous community, we have been receiving donations and offers of help." Items currently most needed by the pantry are: packs of individual string cheese and other non-sweet snacks for children; tuna fish; soups; and shelf-stable milk. Items can be dropped off at the pantry on Mondays from noon to 3 p.m. and Tuesdays from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Please leave the items on the table outside the pantry door. Please do not enter the pantry. People who are interested in volunteering are asked to call (231) 497-8677 and leave a message rather than coming to the pantry, since it is limiting the number of people inside, as advised by the CDC. The pantry is located at 624 State St.
Good Neighbors is committed to do its part in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to serve those in need.
