A Can Can Make a Difference

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."   Matthew 25:35, 40

IS THERE TRULY A NEED IN THIS COMMUNITY?

Each month, an average of over 300 families within the 47441 zip code are helped, including working families having a tough time making ends meet, single parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, widows and widowers juggling medical and food expenses, and many others.  The supplemental food received from the Pantry helps these families by providing food for an extra few days each month.

Do your donations really make a difference?  Absolutely!  God does amazing things no matter how large or how small the donation.
