The Pantry Has Purchased A New Home
The Pantry is launching The Green Apple Initiative to help purchase a new home and continue serving tens of thousands of neighbors in SE Kent County. For over 30 years, The Pantry has called John Knox Presbyterian Church home, but a recent sale of the building has pushed The Pantry to find a new home.
To continue serving its neighbors, The Pantry needs to raise $415,000. As of right now, donors have helped The Pantry raise over $360,000! Good news! The Pantry is re-opening its doors on April 1st, 2019 at its new location- 4307 Kalamazoo Ave SE (formerly Russo’s Market).
Despite re-opening, The Pantry still needs $55,000 to finish final touches, purchase equipment, and sustain operations. The Green Apple Initiative will run until the $415,000 is raised, and The Pantry is over 73% of the way there!
The new owner of the John Knox Presbyterian Church informed The Pantry we had to be out of the building by September 30. Our last day providing services at JKPC was September 28. Three neighboring pantries will be serving our neighbors while we are renovating our new home, thank you Streams of Hope, Family Network of Wyoming, and UCOM!
