January 2020  Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

The Food Pantry staff, board, volunteers and clients hope all of you had a blessed Christmas and send wishes for a very happy and healthy New Year!  During this time of year our clients had the opportunity to see God’s love at work through the many donations to the Pantry that helped them have a brighter Christmas season. The outpouring of support this year has been overwhelming! 

We would like to thank all of the churches, individuals, community organizations and area businesses for all they have done for our clients with donations of food, holiday gifts and financial assistance.  With your help we were able to bless many families during the holidays and we would like to take this opportunity to pass on their thanks to all of you. 

Donations of warm winter clothing are appreciated this time of year.  We are currently in need of sheet sets, blankets, and wash cloths.  If you have any of these items that are gently used and no longer needed, the Food Pantry would welcome your donation.

Our Volunteer of the Month, Betty Kinzer, has been volunteering at the Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry for 6-1/2 years.  She sorts and hangs clothing.  Betty has two children in Tennessee and Missouri.  She likes to play cards a lot, read, and do puzzles.  Betty said the best thing about volunteering at the Food Pantry is that it feels good to help people, if and when they need help.  Betty said she has a lot of laughs with the volunteers she works with and she’s made some good friends there.  She thinks the people of Geneseo are so good to give donations!

Thank you for all your support throughout the year. We pray that God blesses you and your families in 2020!
