On average, the Millington community food pantry serves about 3,500 hungry people in need each year, in large measure thanks to the generosity of folks like you.
It’s a ministry that’s been a part of our community for more than 30 years, lending a helping hand to families in need. As the holiday season approaches, it’s a time of year when the needs of many in our community living on the margins are more keenly felt.
We’re writing to ask for you help as we plan to distribute approximately 75-100 Christmas food baskets to ensure those most in need in our city will be able to share in the spirit of the season with a holiday meal with their families.
If you are able to help us with a donation for the Christmas food baskets, or to help the food pantry get a jump start by being well stocked as we begin the new year in 2019, make a check payable to Millington First United Methodist Church and note “food pantry” on the memo line of the check.
Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of those in our community struggling to make ends meet. And as always, we hope you remember that each item of food that is given is a blessing from God that began with people like you.
