The Food Pantry is in Serious Need of Cereal and Canned Meats

St. George’s supports a local food pantry run by Help by Phone, hosted at Trinity Moravian Church on Good Luck Road.  The pantry is currently critically low on cereal and canned meats, particularly chicken, tuna and salmon.  We ask everyone who can to donate these items throughout the month of May, as we try to help get the food pantry through this dry time.
