Christ’s Pantry recently received a $2,500 donation from Moultrie County farmer Kathy Ruff and America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. The donation will help the organization purchase a new freezer, ground beef and groceries.
“The pantry recently lost use of a freezer full of meat,” said Pastor Al Rennert. “With this money, we hope to purchase a new, more reliable freezer and to also buy ground beef and other food items that are given out on a weekly basis.”
In addition to the new freezer, the donation will help cover about six months of food. Pantry director Jane Franklin started the pantry in 2011 when she noticed people in her community were going hungry.
“The best part about receiving this donation is that we won’t have to worry for a while knowing that we have the funds to take care of people for a long time,” said Franklin. “I think it’s so wonderful that the Ruff family chose us to receive the donation. They are really good people.” Read More
