Food pantry appreciates postal drive

The Community Food Pantry of Dixon would like to express its gratitude to the residents of Dixon who donated to the postal drive in May, when drivers picked up 14,857 pounds of food items.

Most people of this community are fortunate not to find themselves with an empty refrigerator. However, there are those who have to struggle to meet their basic needs, and the cupboards are bare.

The Community Food Pantry, 2001 W. Fourth St., Dixon, continues to provide for those who have come to a new situation in their lives where food is scarce.

The pantry is supported in whole by donations from individuals, churches, service organizations, corporations, and the FEMA Grant Program.

A special thank you to Farley’s Appliance Sales and Service for donating a three-door freezer, SBM Business Equipment Center for a copier, and Leydig Center for its monthly donation.

The pantry is open from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We serve about 300 families a month for a total of 1,000 adults and children.

With your continued support and our dedicated volunteers, we are fighting hunger and giving hope.

Note to readers; Delores Kness is president of the Community Food Pantry.
