Friends, there are probably thousands of people ready to ask for help out there and only one Cindy, so I hope lots of us are ready to assist Pantry 279 in its efforts.
I could use help with my grandkids I got them at my house I do not have ssi numbers for all them I do have two of them but just the numbers not the actual card I have had them for four months now if not longer I do not get help no food stamps money I am on disability can you help me ???
I've definitely need the help with Christmas this year. Its been so hard with this pandemic. Where can we sign up at?? And you said on The 30th of November? Right? What kind of information do I need to have to sign kids up?
Can we help the same family from last year if they sign up again? Or is that too much work for you guys?
The elf dispatch coming soon?! 🥰
When will you start collecting toys?
Somebody opened their card?
I could use some help i have 3 boys in 2 girls
I believe Santa knows I'm being good...lol
My kids need help but when they ask you guys seem to be shady to them also this year you was rude to a lady saying she didn't sign up when she did I can. Tell you who gets help the most advisly they people that voulenteer there kids get help my daughter was taking care of 7 kids I called to get her for the kids in she was in foster care you guys said she got thousand of dollars from foster care which was a lie they didn't help her then said I was not to be around them of course not alone but I told you the foster aunt was getting help the next year you said you adopted my grandkids I had then ad I seen everyone was adopted you said my family was not yet
And you offered me to look into stuff animals and old donated toy fine I was gonna do that then you said that someone else took once again I know people that needs help but you won't help them I think you guys need to be investigated
What is this?

Pampered Chef is doing a fund raiser for us! Not only do we get a percentage of anything bought BUT the contractor is giving us her commission too. What a great way to start Christmas, plus cross off someone on your list! If it's not for you please share, that helps a lot too! ... See MoreSee Less
OK, so really, I'm a big time geek! ( Well and pig lover of course ). I've posted lovely Thanksgiving pics all month, so here's a FUN one. Seriously though, have a FUN day! ENJOY whomever you are with, either in person or via the various phone/computer apps or just the phone. LOOK outside and SEE all of the cool things that are just happening in nature! ( We have squirrels playing in our yard ) EAT like you don't care about that diet you want to be on. DO something for yourself! Happy Thanksgiving!! ... See MoreSee Less
It's Over!! Thank you all SO much for all of your generousity! From donations, to sharing, to talking to others, it ALL counts. This was our biggest year ever! I'll post the final numbers later as soon as I get them all added up, but it's over 2500 families ( 15,000+ people ). Due to everyone working so hard we had extra turkeys and were able to send 6 to The Rise women/children's shelter AND the Ellettsville Fire Dept was able to get some and take some to our local Police! We especially want to Thanks Hoosier Hills Food Bank and First Choice Storage for loaning us their space ad helping us pack the Thanksgiving boxes! Hoosier Hills for storing and helping with a good chunk of food as well. It has been a hard year, but ths community was able to pull together, once again and make sure everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. And finally a Shout out to our amazing team of volunteers here at the Pantry 279 for the many, many hours and labor put in to make this project work AND still feed everyone. HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!!!! ... See MoreSee Less
