Local Senior Food Pantry Runs Through This Saturday, Oct 14th
Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson County Senior Food Pantry has begun its annual food drive to restock the pantry that provides food and personal products to Edmonson County Seniors, according to pantry coordinator Vickie Walker.
The pantry services low income seniors, ages 60 and up, that are Edmonson County residents. The volunteer organization is in need of canned or dry goods, personal hygiene products, and cash donations.
The pantry is located inside the Brownsville Community Center and is 100% volunteer organization. All donations go directly to seniors and none of the volunteers are compensated in any form.
"All our donations are used to help our needy and hungry seniors and all of it stays inside of Edmonson County," said Walker. "We're not only asking for donations, but also volunteers to help us at our drive locations."
Walker said the group will have setups at Cee Bee Food Store, Sav-A-Lot, St. John's Thrift Store, and the food pantry itself. Walker said volunteers can set up their own hours and locations for their donated time.
The drive will begin today, October 2nd, and go through Saturday, October 14th. Walker said if no one is present at the food pantry, a box will be available to place product donations.
