September Mission of the Month: Greenwood Food Pantry
With only a few days left in the month of September, we didn’t want to let the month end without a blog post about our Mission of the Month: The Greenwood Food Pantry. For almost the entire year, the Food Pantry has been in need of donations. COVID-19 has made an impact on their staple supplies.
The Greenwood Food Pantry normally contributes food to more than 700 Leflore County families each month. In order to supply food to these families, the Food Pantry relies on donations from churches and individuals in the community. And the annual “Youth Can Make a Difference” community-wide canned food drive was not held this month, as it has been in years past.
If you would like to contribute to the Food Pantry’s needs, you can either donate food items (canned or boxed food items) or monetarily. The Pantry, which is located on Browning Road behind the Civic Center, is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They accept food donations from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on those days.
If you have any questions, you may reach out to the Food Pantry’s director, Tommy Ellett, at (662) 299-7287.
