Letter to the Editor: Table of Grace Mobile Food Pantry


Dear Editor,

The Table of Grace Mobile Food Pantry is again gathering school supplies to distribute to area families with back to school needs. 2014 marks the fifth year the pantry has distributed school supplies. The process with which we gather and distribute these supplies has evolved, however, the strong support and generosity of the Sidney community has been constant.

Table of Grace depends on a variety of sources for school supplies including church groups, business groups and area residents. While the same groups or individuals don’t always participate from year to year, we always have enough to supply those who apply to receive them, (over 150 kits distributed in 2013).

2014 is no different. Table of Grace has already received sizable donations from several area groups. In addition, individuals have donated enough supplies to fill two 50 gallon donation barrels.

A recent article in the Sidney Sun-Telegraph may have led some to believe that our community has been falling down on the job with regards to donations for this back to school program. It has been our experience that the community as a whole has been and continues to be very giving.

The Table of Grace Mobile Food Pantry strives to fill some of the needs of our community and we are grateful for the ongoing support. We are thankful for the financial assistance, product donations and volunteer time this community provides. To find out more about our organization or to request back to school supplies, please contact Holy Trinity Lutheran Church at 254-3124.
