Pantry Update:  August 2012

In July the pantry hit a record for clients served in one month and new families added!  We assisted 378 families representing 1122 individuals!  To date in 2012 through your support, we have been able to help a total of 2203 families - 6181 individuals!   We added 55 new clients to our roster.  Our families have 325 children under the age of 18.   Unfortunately this is not good news and is reflective of our current economic state. 

A big THANK YOU goes out to all of you who support the Christian Food Pantry including Sweetbay Supermarket in The Villages, Publix Groceries in The Villages, our many Church supporters along with those clubs and individuals in the area who so graciously donate!  Because of you, those less fortunate are able to have food on their table.

Upcoming Food Drives:
       The Daily Sun - August 2012
       First Baptist Church & Publix - September 22, 2012
       The Villages Golf and Country Clubs - September 17 - 23, 2012

May God bless you and yours.
