May 2019 Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry Newsletter

The annual Letter Carriers’ “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive will be held Saturday, May 11.  It is the largest one day food drive in the world and is made possible by thousands of letter carriers who volunteer their time to participate, countless volunteers who sort, collect, and distribute much needed food to pantries and food banks across the country.  Just leave your donation by your mailbox and it will be picked up when your mail is delivered that day. Food drives like this help carry us through the summer months, when food donations typically decrease.

Thank you to all who donated to the “Scouting for Food” drive on April 6.  Also, thank you to the Scouts, leaders and parents who picked up and delivered to the Food Pantry, and to those who helped sort the 2,789 items that were donated!

Thank you to the Girl Scouts Service Unit 886, who donated 68 laundry baskets full of ingredients for Easter dinner, and baskets of Easter candy for children.  Thank you to Sellman/Cox Insurance Agency, who donated Easter hams to complete the Easter dinner baskets for our clients!

Sellman/Cox Insurance Agency has also pledged to donate 10 half gallons and 10 gallons of milk each month for our clients, from April through December. Gallons of Milk are rarely donated and often requested.  Thank you, Sellman Cox!

During the month of May, Geneseo Super Wash, 810 W. Main St., will donate $2 for every set of 5 tokens purchased (for $32).  They will also donate 50 cents for every fully paid Auto Wash and Self-Serve car wash. Thank you, Geneseo Super Wash!

The food pantry is in need of sheets, towels, washcloths, and fans.  Thank you for your support!

The Food Pantry will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.

Our food needs for May are:  Salad dressing, chunky style soup, diced tomatoes, raisins, and sugar.

Non-food needs include:  Sandwich bags, foil, cling wrap, toilet cleaner, and toilet paper.
