October 2018 Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

With Halloween coming up, our clients will be shopping at the Food Pantry for Halloween costumes for their children, as well as warm clothing for the chilly fall weather.  If you have any clothing or household items you no longer need, you may donate them during our business hours:  Mon., Tue., and Thu. from 9:00-noon and 1:00-4:00, and Fri., 9:00-noon.

Every year Christian love is demonstrated in the many ways our community makes the holidays better for the less fortunate in our area.  It’s not too early to start thinking about what you or your group might like to do to help the less fortunate during the holiday season.  Some ideas include making boxes of ingredients for a Thanksgiving dinner, gift certificates for singles or elderly people who would be alone on the holidays, food drives, or donating meat.  To let us know how you might want to help, or to find out more about adopting a family for Thanksgiving or Christmas, please contact the Food Pantry at 944-3165.

For the entire month of September, Geneseo Super Wash at 810 W. Main Street donated 50 cents to the Food Pantry for every automatic and self-serve car wash that was purchased.  In addition they donated $1.00 for every set of tokens purchased.  Thank you, Super Wash!

Please note that the Food Pantry’s address has changed to 620 W. Main St., Geneseo.  Our location has not changed, but we have a new address.

The Food Pantry will be closed on Monday, October 8 in observance of Columbus Day.
