Pantry President Kathy Schneiter said the Pantry will begin service Nov. 7 at 11481 Allison Court, a left turn and just down the street, from its present Smith Drive location. Mortgage problems with that donated warehouse there and a merger with Faith Community Church's Food Pantry forced the Pantry to move to a bigger donated facility.
Schneiter said the last day for service at Smith Drive will be Nov. 5 with operations resuming two days later at Allison Court. Monday hours will be changed, she said, with evening service from 4 to 7 pm. "That's to help families with daytime jobs," said Schniter. Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays will remain unchanged, 1 to 4 pm.
Board member Harriet Ford reports there's still a lot of equipment the Pantry needs, however. Here's a list:
Industrial warehouse programmable thermostat
2 utility cabinets
8 foot rolling stairs
Window treatments for 4 windows
3 Tack/bulletin Boards for notices, jobs, news articles
8 padded folding chairs
3 coat racks
Digital scale for food
4 no touch soap dispensers (Simple Human or Lysol)
Heavy duty floor mats
