Food Pantry News: September 2018

We helped 18 families in July.  Many of those families have not asked for help August, but I have had calls from six new families that moved into our community.  They were all very grateful for the food they received.  It seems as though each month is different. I would like to thank you for your continued support of this much need  project.  The pantry is low on toilet tissue, Kleenex, paper towels, canned fruit, fruit juice, grape jelly, and cereal.

Youth Attend Baby Fold Camp (July/Aug 2018)




On Saturday, July 14, six youth went to Baby Fold Camp for the week.  Five of them were seniors  – which means this will be their last year.  For one camper, it was his first year.

Next year—there will be open spots for new youth who might want to experience a week at Baby Fold…

Building Loan Update: August 2018


Our current balance that is owed on the building loan is $176,588. We are still waiting on a Note from Morton Community Bank (previously State Bank of Arthur), which will be a 20-year Note.  The sooner we can pay off the loan—the less money/interest we will have to pay. We have appreciated everyone’s pledges, as the balance would not be where it currently stands.                                                              

Getting to this point has been a wonderful success!
