A cabinet was donated by a member to a local senior citizen center and once a month, members will bring in non-perishable food items and toiletries to be collected to fill the cabinet. We will also make the items available to our local members with a need before we gather items and take to the senior citizen center.
The senior citizen center, located in Lebanon, Tennessee, provides many activities for the senior citizens in that area. They also offer lunch for them at a low cost. Many of the senior citizens are on a fixed income and some are even homeless. Receiving a meal at the center may be their only meal of the day. This “Free Pantry” will be available to help anyone who may have a need.
Some of the senior citizens are unable to go to the store for simple items like a toothbrush. Now, thanks to the “Free Pantry” project, they have access to some basic items. We will also have a few magazines and booklets inside. We are very excited and thankful to be able to get this project started! We have already received good feedback from the ladies that run the center and they are thankful to have the help for the members of the senior center.
