ELMWOOD—Elmwood Food Pantry volunteers Tom Weber and Nolan DeMarce have been working hard to set up the new food pantry at 108 S. Main St.
Many volunteers, contributors of food and money, are helping to get the pantry underway. Organizers commend Nolan and Janet DeMarce for donating a freezer and vacuum cleaner. These are needed items and greatly appreciated.
Financial contributions can be left at the Elmwood Citizens State Bank or sent to Wayne Nohelty, treasurer, at 618 S. Butternut St., Elmwood. Checks should be written to HPC/Elmwood Food Pantry. Recognition goes to Elmwood High School students for donating admission money from their Halloween dance.
Non-perishable foods may be donated at the three Elmwood churches, the Rock Elm Methodist Church, the Spring Lake Lutheran Church and the Elmwood Public Library.
The last mobile food pantry will take place at the Elmwood Auditorium dining room this Friday.
The permanent food pantry will begin on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at 108 S. Main St. This portion of the Professional Building is being donated for use by the owners, Glenn and Dorothy Nelson.
The pantry will be open on the first Tuesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on the third Tuesday of the month from 3 to 7 p.m.
All people in need of food are encouraged and very welcome to come to the pantry.
