Here is the “Winter Newsletter” from LIFE: 

As the year comes to a close, I am amazed at everything we’ve accomplished together in 2021. Clients are back in the pantry, we have a van to help with transportation, children attended our back-to-school event to select supply filled backpacks and spirit wear, another successful Pass it On filled Thanksgiving baskets and Holiday Food Bags, numerous food drives, fund raisers, runs, and reading events were held on our behalf, monetary donations to help clients with financial assistance continued to come in; it is truly remarkable.

On behalf of everyone at LIFE, a big thank you to everyone who donated food and household items, volunteered in the pantry, led a food drive, donated money, or supported us in other ways to have such a successful 2021. Your support allows us the privilege of helping our neighbors in need. 

This issue highlights information about our services, events, corporate sponsors, how you can help, and more. Visit the LIFE Food Pantry website to learn more about how you can get involved.
