Hi everybody,
Just a polite request as a former poor person:
Everybody will be dropping food by the mailbox Saturday. in addition, or

scrounge around for because the TANF grant doesn't reflect the need:
Toilet paper
Tampons
diapers
toothpaste
laundryand/or dish and/or body soap
shcool supplies
scrunchies/other hairpieces
Powdered iced tea/gatorade etc in the summer months
powdered hot chocolate mix in the winter months
coffee all year round!
all condiments (catsup, mustard, relish, hot sauce)
Please remember that when folks go to the food pantry, they often get
peanut butter, but no jelly
spaghetti, but no sauce
tuna fish, but no mayonaisse
and remember the kids, and please include some cookies and other snacks
Thank you, and please give in accordance with your economic viability.
