The Taylorville Food Pantry has announced their new donation initiative to provide local, struggling families with a Holiday feast this Christmas season. The Taylorville Food Pantry has successfully served over 500 families for the past six months and now looks to the community to once again answer the call for donations for the Holiday Meat Drive.
This is the first year for the Taylorville Food Pantry to ask the community for specific items focused on creating a Christmas Dinner, namely, turkey, ham, or pork loin. Amy Hagen, Co-coordinator for the TFP explains the process of getting the drive started.
Hagen described the Taylorville Food Pantry’s recent partnership with the Taylorville Police Department to supply turkeys to families on Thanksgiving.
Pam Moses, Co-coordinator for the TFP updates the community on recent food pantry statistics that show numbers have only increased.
Amy Hagen, Pam Moses, and the Taylorville Food Pantry are grateful for the support given by the local community. The coordinators ask that while shopping for the family feast, think of the family that might not have the financial stability to do so, and grab seconds for the Taylorville Food Pantry.
Donations are being received now and can be dropped off at the TFP located at 1429 East Main Cross Street in Taylorville.
Amy Hagen and Pam Moses appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
