Member Announcements & Events
Hi from all of us at the NEW Pantry,
The last month has been crazy busy for us but it has been a GOOD month.  

What made it Crazy Busy you ask?.....
-We moved into our FOREVER HOME! We have awesome volunteers with trucks and we got moved in one afternoon!
Then the next day we came in early and got everything on the shelves and put away so we could start helping clients indoors.
It has taken a lot of people a lot of time to make this possible.

What made it a Good month?....
The clients love the new place with all the space. We have gone back to allowing the clients to come in and that allows them to have the choice on what food they take home. It is MUCH better this way! They are very appreciative of everything they recieve. AND.....
WE HIT OUR MATCHING CAMPAIGN!!!!!! Thank you and I mean Thank you to everyone who has supported the Pantry. You are making it possible for everyone in our area to have food on their tables. You are a blessing! 

Attached is our needs list. If you are able please help us with an item or 2. You can drop it off at the New Pantry at 108 W. Washington or the Price Chopper Barrel.
It seems we've slipped from Summer into Autumn. Changing seasons can make you feel unbalanced (as if we needed more to throw us off!) If you haven't been to yoga lately, step back on your mat and remember the peace that comes with your practice. We'd love to see you in the studio or online!
