We need these pie crusts, or boxed graham cracker crumbs, or jiffy Pie Crust mix, any will do. We need 1200 of them total. We are struggling to get them from our usual sources and we need them asap. If anyone can grab these from dollar stores or where ever and bring them over this week, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you!! ... See MoreSee Less

Gmail was sticking peoples confirmations in quarantine. He has fixed the security issue and will be resending confirmations out tonight after 10pm. ... See MoreSee Less

With the weather getting cooler and wetter, the Pantry could use one of these shelters for our outdoor sign in to protect the volunteer and paperwork. If someone would like to purchase and donate one of these shelters it we would be greatly appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

You can make a wedding registry on Amazon and people can contribute to items until they are fully funded. Not sure if that helps any, but wanted to let you know.

Walmart has these in the clearance aisle for $50, located between the Christmas items and tools.

Good morning! I hope everyone gets to enjoy this last warm fall day before the temps drop. While you are enjoying it, please take a moment to think about your family and friends. You know the holidays are right around the corner. Now imagine that for the first time in your life, you can't afford a Thanksgiving dinner, or food at all for that matter. You have to choose between rent, electricity ( warmth ), and eating. You are canceling Thanksgiving dinner because you can't afford it, and not getting together with family and friends, not because of COVID, but because you don't want them to know you can't afford the food. You might have peanut butter this year. This is what so many families are facing this year. Due to COVID and the economy, people's savings is gone. They might have been lucky enough to restart working, but now at a pay cut or a fraction of the old hours. Many are still not working. How do you tell your kids there isn't going to be Thanksgiving this year? This is why the Thanksgiving box program is so needed and important, more so than ever this year. People, especially children, need some form of normality. This program helps to provide that. It delivers food, ability to get together with close family without embarrassment, dignity, and HOPE. With 2000 families at stake ( and honestly there will be more that need it ), we can't do this with out your help. Please consider making a cash donation so we can pay for the food orders that are starting to arrive and purchase turkeys and hams. Even a small donation means so much. Talk to others, start a challenge in your friend group or at work! Businesses can challenge each other! Make it fun, the rewards are so worth it. Donations can be made via Pay pal at pantry279@yahoo.com, VENMO @pantry279 mailed to Pantry 279 P.O. Box 312, Ellettsville, IN 47429 or brought to us at the Pantry at 501 E. Temperance, Ellettsville, IN. We can even come and pick it up if you call 812-606-1524. Thank you so very much to those who have donated already. I wish I could accurately tell you the gratefulness and appreciation that the families receiving these boxes express. Thank you again and please share! ... See MoreSee Less
