DID YOU KNOW…That Snow White Carpet Cleaning has generously donated their time and expert services to the Head to Toe Hygiene Pantry this week?  Their efficient team came to the Pantry and cleaned the carpet in two large areas.  After several years of having 400+ families (which equates to 800-900 people) each month walking in those rooms for the past several years, the carpet was in dire need of cleaning.  Thank you, Jerry and Jeremy Becker and Company!

 

* That First Presbyterian Church has chosen the Head-To-Toe Hygiene Pantry as a

recipient of their “local charity fund” for this year and sent $1,000 to be used in caring

for others. They have been wonderful, caring partners with financial donations as well

as baby supplies!

* In December, Meritrust had a program called “Skip a Payment” and for every loan

participant that chose the program they would donate $25.00 to a charity?

Employees were allowed to nominate their favorite charity, and the Pantry was nominated and ended up being chosen as one of 19 charities to receive a $1,500 donation.

 

* That on March 21, there were 391 families served at the Pantry and 38 volunteers

shared their Saturday morning to hand out items.

 

* As of March 21, 2015, the Pantry has been serving others for 4 1/2 years!
