Area food pantry relocated

By Staff | Jul 20, 2011

The Ministerial Association recently moved their food pantry from the rectory at Holy Rosary Catholic Church to the First Baptist Church in Sistersville.

Pastor Bill Dawson commented. “The Ministerial Association would like to thank the folks at Holy Rosary Catholic Church for the space and the people at the Baptist Church for allowing the move to happen.”

Dawson noted the move will make it easier for volunteers and clients to access the food pantry.

Those helping with the effort include: Sheila Howelett, Carolyn Forester, Connie Boyd, Carol Haught, Ruby Mossor, Delores Billiter, Bob Hicks, Jennie Hicks, Stephanie Landis, Linda Hayes, Amanda Dawson, Tessa Boyd, Donald Boyd, Kathy Hicks, Craig Landis, David Pancake, Tom Gray, Pastor Phil Richards and Pastor Bill Dawson.

The organization offers food assistance courtesy of the area food pantry. The pantry is staffed by representatives from area churches.

Food is distributed once a week by appointment. Those in need should contact an area pastor for assistance.

They also offer assistance in many areas such as prescription assistance, emergency transportation assistance, rent and utility assistance and transient lodging.

The Ministerial Association is gratefulto all people who have donated money, food and/or their time to assist the group as they continue to serve the community.
