SOLON– On Monday, Nov. 25, the Solon Community Pantry provided 40 families with a box containing all the ingredients to cook a complete Thanksgiving turkey or ham dinner. This was possible only through the generosity of the community. The pantry would like to thank each and every person or group that so generously donated money or food in support of this holiday meal, plus the many volunteers who stepped forward.
The pantry’s enrollment is on the increase and it is the food and monetary contributions to the pantry, or placed in the collection cans at Sam’s Main Street Market and at Casey’s, that allow the pantry to keep its shelves supplied. Food drives are also very essential and the pantry’s organizers thank all those groups who come together to organize and donate.
The pantry wishes to recognize the many folks in the area who give of themselves quietly behind the scenes every day and in many ways. Solon Community Pantry is the recipient of the tireless volunteering and support provided by these unsung heroes as are many other groups and activities. The pantry’s work is a collaboration of many people but most importantly is the home the Solon United Methodist Church provides that enables the pantry to carry out its mission to provide food resources for families.
