ENGLEWOOD — This is the time when children are back to school and the winter months are quickly approaching and the Northmont Friends In Service to Humanity (F.I.S.H.) are facing a food shortage.
“The need for food has doubled at the food pantry,” said Candy Gauldin, director and volunteer of the Northmont F.I.S.H. Food Pantry. “The shelves are lower than they have ever been. It is time for everyone to make a concerted effort to help the less fortunate. We all have an important part to play to support the most vulnerable members in our community. Watch grocery specials and buy for the food bank, give monetary donations or have a food drive. Volunteers are to be commended for the work done in the food bank giving of their time in these current economic times.”
Sponsors are needed to maintain the pantry, according to Gauldin. The summer months brought many residents to the pantry and the need for food has grown greater and greater
The most needed items are: Spaghetti and Sauce, Oatmeal, Cold Cereal, Pancake Mix and Syrup,
meat items, Saltine Crackers, Mac and Cheese.
Think about how you can help. No donation is too small. Monetary donations can be mailed to Box 102
Englewood, Ohio 4322 or donations can be dropped off at 265 Smith Dr., Englewood.
Call 836-4807 and ask Candy if there are special needs for the pantry.
