Everyone! We need major help on finding a new home and a Holiday space! Our realtor is working over time trying everything, but the few buildings we have found have declined us due to our traffic, in other words the fact we serve so many. We need abuilding close by in any direction, at least 4500+ SF, a door big enough for a pallet to go thru, if not an over head door or loading dock, climate control, and plenty of parking. We have a grant to pay rent ( within reason ). WE MUST MOVE, we have very much out grown our current space.
Also we need a small temporary ( Nov and Dec only ) space close by to pack Thanksgiving boxes and do the ELF Dispatch. The Thanksgiving boxes will be packed there, but actual distribution will be at the Fair Grounds, so no traffic worries there.
If you know of a place, or are an owner and want to be a town hero by keeping us going, please contact me asap, 812-606-1524 pantry279@yahoo.com Thank you!

What about the empty Tuesday Morning shop? It’s next to Fresh Thyme on the west side. It’s been empty for over a year.

I wonder if any of the buildings at the fairgrounds could work, even if temporarily? (not sure if they're climate-controlled, cost to use, etc but just saw the food bank book fair was there, and those are pretty large warehouse like buildings) good luck!! Hope you find a great large space.

The build on south side the old fresh time may be able to help I no the person that could help u

Check out the old Wonders thrift on S Walnut. Should be big enough for storage & has large drive thru / parking

The old Marsh store on the East side, Lucky's on the South side of Bloomington but I imagine the Rent is extremely high. So sad so many empty buildings in Bloomington Ellettsville and not one owner can accommodate your non profit

Long shot ... may also take too long - build?? What about building at fairgrounds for temporary housing. Storage unit just for storage?? I will keep thinking.

Maybe, OLD luckys market on Southside . Not sure who owns it

Bed bath and beyond &hhgregg building was empty last time I drove by on the west side

What about the old Kmart building on the east side? Anyone have info on if it’s sold?

Have you checked out the tire store near downtown?

Jeff Mease-any ideas?

Is the old Classic Lanes being used??

So you need another building from the church your at know

Old Macy’s after Spirit Halloween leaves?

Send me a message, I may know of a holiday space you can talk to, easily accessible from 37 S.

Are you going to be open tomorrow

The old MC Sports building west side. City Church used to use it till they moved

Call the storage facility on Lakewood dr off 48, Kevin Farris Kevin, see if he can help you,his building is set up that way

Just sent you a PM

Sharing. Maybe someone has a pole barn somewhere that can handle the traffic.

I am looking for 2-3 people ( children are welcome ) to volunteer on Saturdays 11:00 - 5:15. This will give our over worked, very hard working regular volunteers a day off to enjoy life and family. It will also give their bodies time to recuperate from the week. I will start training people Sat Oct. 23. This is a fun way to give back! Please contact me if you are interested! Thank you and SHARE ... See MoreSee Less
