UPDATE on Freezer break-in and theft.
As always, you all are just amazing! So very humbling really. Someone asked how many kids have been fed with the Children's Summer Food Program so far. We started May 21 and thus far have fed 1496 children thru the program. It continues until Aug 4.
We have had a gentleman offer to come Sat morning to put the camera on the wall for us and several others offer if that falls thru! Currently we have a huge padlock on the walk in until they can come and fix the lock/handle hopefully next week, unless someone is a lock smith or knows how to deal with this kind of thing. but the lock will work until then. Thank you to all whom have been sharing and donating money to purchase food and cover any repair costs. Also thank you to everyone whom has been offering to bring food to the pantry!! We are closed Fridays, but I will be there 12:30 - 3 for a conference and paperwork, so if you knock or call I can take donations. For those asking for online links: PayPal is pantry279@yahoo.com Venmo is @pantry279 Donate button on website www.pantry279.org Or Mailing address is P.O. Box 312, Ellettsville, IN 47429. Yes, we DO have insurance, but after deductible, its not worth reporting and getting our rates raised a bunch. While this person, or persons, were not a very good example of humanity or the right thing to do, You all Are Definitely reaffirming! Again we at Pantry 279, extend our gratitude!

I cannot believe the audacity of some people😭 Troop leader of 02466 here, my husband owns Top Phase Electric and we would be happy to come help where we can with the security cameras, if needed.

Thanks for all you do. I hope the donations from the community and the businesses donating their time and services will make the food secure and enough will be purchased to continue to feed the children this Summer.

I am sad to say someone broke into our Outdoor Walk-in Freezer last night. They broke the lock, and stole food. My guess is they were spooked as they didn't get away with everything, but most of what they DID get away with was items for the Children's summer food program, which was cases of hot dogs, Armour Lunchmakers ( which is like Lunchables ), some block cheese, and some frozen pizza's. Honestly is could have been a lot worse, but we don't have the funds to replace those items atm. We have purchased a large padlock to lock things up until Polar King can make it out to repair the handle and lock. While we have many camera's on the INSIDE of the Pantry, we have none on the outside. We do have a camera, but lack someone with the tools to install it on the concrete walls. If anyone has that ability, and would like to help out by installing our camera, it would be greatly appreciated. The Police have been notified and we were told that there has been many breakins and such recently. While I know people are in need, you could have just come in and gotten food during our hours. The Children;s Summer Food Program will continue, but we won't have as much for a few weeks. Our apologies. If anyone has any information PLEASE let us or the police know. Thank you! ...

So sorry this happened! Can you please post your link for monetary donations?

Is there a way to donate monetarily online? Or is it easier to drop off a check in person?

Made a donation to help replace what was taken. Also if you don’t end up getting the camera installed please reach out to me.
