Pantry 279

To run any pantry ( or charity ), especially one that has grown this large, you struggle with 3 main problems: Money, Food, and Volunteers. It seems when you get one under control, the other 2 suffer badly. Currently volunteers are looking pretty good, food is a little on the down side, but not terrifying. That leaves money, which is most dreaded ( at least for me ). Our main, and almost only bill is "shared Maintenance fees" which is what gets the majority of our food to us. It is of vital importance. We are currently just shy of being - $10,000 on this. That's BEHIND or negative $10,000 and new fees added on March 1st. We desperately need to get this paid down. Any donations will help, even small ones. Please share and/or donate if you can. Yes, we are 501c3, and tax deductible! Donations can be made via Paypal ( pantry279@yahoo.com ), VENMO ( pantry279 ), or brought/mailed to Pantry 279 501 E. Temperance, Ellettsville, IN 47429. Business, organization, group donations are great too. Shout outs and receipts available upon request. Thank you for helping us be able to continue to do what we do! ... See MoreSee Less

We are in need of a 3rd and maybe 4th delivery driver. Recently we have seen a drastic rise in delivery requests and our 2 drivers, whom are amazing, are over burdened. If you can deliver to the Bloomington/Ellettsville area on Sat afternoons, please let us know. Even if you can only do 2 Sat. a month, that would work too. Thank you!!! ... See MoreSee Less

I have been reminded of how important we've become by a phone call. The person said they were out of food, homebound, and the trustee from a township not ours told them to call us, we were the only hope. We struggle during Jan and Feb, but apparently other pantries are struggling harder. I'm happy we are blessed with 2 amazing families who drive deliveries for us on Sat. Thank you!! ...

There is no school tomorrow (1/20). Will you need volunteers tomorrow and if so, what time would kids be able to help?

Hope you get feeling better soon. God bless you and the volunteers for what you do for the committee.

Praying you feel better soon.

Big Hugs and PRAYERS you feel better dear friend !!!!!!
