Pantry coordinator Maureen writes, “The NEEDS pantry has learned a thing or two about soliciting donations. It’s best to begin with those who most understand the need.
Pantry staff turned to Montgomery Community Church’s MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and Good Shepherd Lutheran’s MOPS and MOMS members to ask for donations of feminine hygiene products — with resounding success! Each group generated a full SUV of products after hearing that such items aren’t covered by the SNAP benefits provided to low-income families. These items are expensive, and very difficult for the pantry to keep in stock. But thanks to these local moms, we’ll be able to offer them to our needy neighbors for months to come.”
Thank you, MOPS and MOMS!
