It has been a busy year for Cut Bank’s Harvest Food Pantry. As it is nearing the year’s end, the pantry is very low on non-food personal hygiene products. The last week of August’s distribution was handled by June Duncan and Prairie Peace Lutheran Church. Sixty-nine families were served and most non-food items have been distributed.
Food Pantry Chairman, Patty Grubb said they are preparing a grant request for non-food items. In the interim of waiting for the grant, the food pantry board is asking for community assistance through local churches.
Although the main focus of the food pantry is for food, it also applies for grants and holds drives to provide necessary items most often requested by needy recipients, including: toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, small bags of dog and cat food and/or litter.
Please consider assisting the Harvest Food Pantry in their drive by dropping oﬀ your donations to the following participating churches in their drop box marked with the Harvest Food Pantry poster: St. Margaret Catholic Church, Prairie Peace Lutheran Church LCMC, First Presbyterian Church, Canvas Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church ELCA and Cut Bank Community Bible Church.
Non-food items may also be dropped in the drop box provided every Friday from 8:30-10 a.m. at the back door of the Harvest Food Pantry, located in the alley across from the Moose Lodge parking lot in Cut Bank.
This non-food drive will end Oct. 8. For more information or questions, please contact Penne Swenson 406-229-0713. Your support and kindness is greatly appreciated by many!
