It’s time once again to rally together in support of Community Services of Starke County, helping them in their endeavor as they serve more than one-fifth of the county’s populations with their various services. Nearly 1000 families per month visit the food pantry, while 823 people utilize transportation regularly each month. More than 700 families sign up for energy assistance and many more make use of other services offered by the organization.
Their most popular service, however, is once again in need of donations and Rhonda Overmyer at the food pantry said they need to fill their shelves with a variety of items. She said the pantry is most in need of canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, canned meat – such as beef, tuna or chicken – as well as personal hygiene items like shampoo, soaps, laundry detergent and toilet paper. They also need pancake mix, syrup, and canned soups.
You may drop off your donation at the Community Services of Starke County Food Pantry, located at 311 E. Culver Road in Knox.
