Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce has announced they will have a luncheon on Friday, July 21 at 11:30 am sponsored by St. John Thrift Store & Pantry.
St. John Thrift Store opened its doors on Nov 20, 2014 & the Food Pantry in May 2016. According to the Chamber, through their sales they help to serve the people of Edmonson County, providing financial help with electric & water bills and to purchase food for the pantry. They partner with Feeding America to purchase food at a low cost for distribution to those in need. Also with the help of other great people & churches, they are able to purchase items not available through Feeding America.
The Chamber also said St. John's takes all types of donations, including cash in their store. The things that they're unable to use are recycled or shipped elsewhere to help in other parts of the state. Although they follow the guidelines for financial assistance, they know that there are times when people just need a helping hand. They do not discriminate, and help all age groups, all denominations from young to old. Their mission is to let people know that they are there to give assistance when needed or just that little boost when things go wrong.
Their store hours are: Mon-Fri, 9am to 2:30pm-- Sat: 9am to 1pm or later. Pantry Hours: Mon-Wed & Fri: 10am to 2pm.
All are welcome to the Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Fri. July 21 at 11:30am at the Edmonson County Library on Ferguson Street. St. John’s Thrift Store & Pantry is graciously providing the complimentary meal and informative presentation about their services.
