WIN Food Pantry Desperately Needs Donations

Win Food Pantry

Hi Everyone, 

Please read the email I recieved from Rev. Karyn Ratcliffe:

Dear Residents of Wayne:

The Wayne Interfaith Network (WIN) is in desperate need of donations to its pantry.

Within the past 18 months, the number of families being fed each week from the food pantry has increased from about five per week to a record high of 20. That's every week. At that rate, the pantry's supplies are constantly being depleted. Please take some time in the next few days to purchase and donate the following items that are most needed:

Rice, pancake syrup, coffee, tea, pasta, macaroni and cheese, ketchup, mustard, mayo, cooking oil, jelly, cereal, canned fruit, and canned vegetables.

The pantry is located in The , 120 Lake Drive East.

Donations can be dropped off during office hours, Monday - Thursday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please follow signs for the food pantry or stop by the church office. You can also leave your contact info if you would like to volunteer in the food pantry. Donations payable to WIN can also be mailed to the church office.

Thank you for your generosity and concern. I look forward to seeing the pantry shelves full again.

Rev. Karyn Ratcliffe
