Here’s an update for the Wilson Community Food Pantry. Director Janet Hoffman said: “The pantry would like to thank our community for taking the time to care and share with those in need. As the fall leads into winter, seasonal workers will be in need of us again to tide them over in to next spring. As of the writing, our family number has increased to 85, with the average number in the family being 4 to 5. I am thinking that by our anniversary date — Nov. 13 — we will be up to 100. In less than a year, this shows us of the need for our food pantry services. If you know of anyone who is in need our pantry services, please have them stop on Tuesday or give me a call. Many of you in the community, as well as village and town organizations, stepped up to the plate and helped us with our holiday meals and stocking of the pantry shelves last year. We ask that you please consider doing it again this year. If you have any vegetables or fruit remaining in your gardens, please consider donating those to the pantry. We have extended our hours on from 2 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, if you need to drop off items. Also, if you need items picked up, call me at 751-0165. Those on the pantry committee and volunteers look forward to continuing to serve our community and with your help we will succeed. We thank you.”
